Greetings Xda. This is my first post, so apologies if this is on the wrong board.
Firstly to give you an idea of my own knowledge and experience: I've worked as a software developer for the last couple of years, doing primarily Java and C++. I have a good amount of experience using Linux, however all my experience is almost exclusively with Server and Desktop Applications.
I have an Android tablet that I bought a couple of years ago and I've been trying to come up for a use for it. I would like to completely remove all of the software I can, and turn the thing into a control panel that can send commands over wifi to control or monitor anything I want (I'll probably use HTTP requests to a server for this, but that's not relevant).
I have very little knowledge of how I can start, although I'm guessing that somehow I could install Debian with an existing desktop environment to do this. Can anybody give my advice and point me towards material I can use to achieve this?
The Tablet is a versus touchtab 8dc.
