Learning OpenPOWER firmware

A few days ago, I blogged about AMI joining OpenPOWER. Recently, there’s been some other activity in OpenPOWER.

IBM just announced SuperVessel, an OpenPOWER-based cloud for developers:

It appears the source code to the OpenPOWER firmware was released about a year ago. Luckily, some others have been blogging on OpenPOWER firmware already:

I’m just learning about the OpenPOWER community, it’s been years since I’ve written PowerPC assembly, and that was OS-level stuff, I am not aware of current OpenPOWER firmware technology. I probably won’t have a lot of time to post blog entries next week, but but I’ll have some more on OpenPOWER firmware in future blog posts.
