a) Valitse aihe omaksi kurssityöksi ja varaa se kommenttina aikataulusivun perään.

b) Julkaise raportti MarkDownilla. Jos käytät GitHub:ia, se tekee muotoilun automaattisesti “.md”-päätteisiin dokumentteihin.

c) Aja oma Salt-tila suoraa git-varastosta. Voit joko tehdä tilan alusta lähtien itse tai forkata sirottimen.

This is the last assignment for the course. I had to pick and idea for an live-usb configuration and this assignment I had to do using MarkdDown. Github is really good for this as it support Markdown files.

I asked few of my friends what they would want to have for configuration live-usb. They gave me a few idea what they would like to have on a fresh live-usb.

More detailed explanation I will have in my Github repository. Shortly for my configuration I wanted to automatically update and upgrade, so i can install anything I had to enable universe, set keyboard layout language, make two terminals open side-by-side, program for writing code I chose atom.
