brickos The source code for the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 firmware (OS and VM) will be going live at 00:00 CET (Central European Time), 1 August 2013 . Check back on this blog to find out about location of the files and further instructions.

The source code includes everything you need to create your own version of the VM, the Linux OS (Angstrom) and a bunch of build scripts (shell).

There will be a hack-a-thon at the OHM2013 event, starting at midnight tonight, when the embargo on the source code is lifted.
