Sweeten your Yocto Build Times with Icecream

Presenter:Joshua Watt, Garmin International
Summary: Yocto takes a considerable amount of time to build complex systems and hence,
a lot of time is spent waiting for builds to complete.One method of accelerating these
builds is to use a distributed compiler such as Icecream. The presenter discusses the
current state of Icecream support in Yocto, pros and cons of using Icecream, typical
configurations, as well as tips, tricks, and quirks he has learned while using Icecream.

Working with the Linux Kernel in the Yocto Project

Presenter:Sean Hudson, The Yocto Project
Summary: The slides cover an example recipe to add the Kernel to the build and talks
about the best practices and the work flows to create a custom kernel for their
distribution. The talk also explores the development cycle of creating a new
kernel configuration and integrating it fully back into the platform.
