Yeah, be great to see you there.

I've started the series of doc updates in

Feedback always welcome. The goal is to have small tutorials that
people can follow to get up
and going with OpenBMC development.  We'll be walking through these
with people at the upcoming summit.

Future docs I'm thinking are:
- Adding a new systems (bitbake layer, kernel changes)
- Systemd phosphor service manipulation and usage
- Debugging
- Maybe taking someone through the process of a gerrit commit, don't
want to be redundant with our existing doc though

I'm trying to point to existing README and other docs as appropriate
to avoid redundancy.
