Cross Platform Enablement for the Yocto Project with Containers - Randy Witt, Intel
Leveraging Docker containers has allowed for easier completion of a wide variety of tasks within the Yocto Project. The containers also allow for host isolation (apart from the kernel), repeatability, and easier use and setup of Yocto Project tools such as bitbake, toaster, and the extensible sdk/devtool. Trying out various Linux distributions for verification becomes simpler. Similar workflows across platforms now comes largely for free, since Docker for Windows and Mac transparently run the Linux containers with a hypervisor. It is straightforward to extend the containers for different usages since the metadata is available via git. In this presentation Randy will give a high level demonstration of the containers that already exist and how they might be used.
