Embedded Linux Conference: board farms
During our session at Embedded Linux Prague, I provided an overview of the Witekio farm highlighting the challenges faced – both in hardware challenges (connecting boards to farms) and software challenges (providing a software platform to higher level software such as Jenkins, KernelCI to use).
Everyone is talking about board farms and becoming farmers to their own board farms. Board farms add a link to continuous integration that allows for continuous deployment and automated testing. However we are all working on this in silos – yet we come across the same challenges and solve them with very different proprietary solutions.
