Over the years Manuel gained experience in building Linux BSPs with different methods and toolkits. With this knowledge in mind he maintained the embedded linux build environment (ELBE http://elbe-rfs.org) for several years. Manuel has given Linux-related talks at RTLWS, LinuxTag and Chemnitzer Linuxtage and Embedded Linux Conference Europe.
This is for people that want to use Debian on a custom embedded hardware instead of building and maintaining a complete own distribution.
It will be shown how to maintain and build customized Debian packages and images for different targets on a kubernetes cluster. The current implementation is running on rancher and reuses parts of ELBE (https://github.com/linutronix/elbe) along with pbuilder. Jenkins is used as scheduler. Jobs are triggered with webhooks out of gitlab. The packages and images are available on Nexus.
The talk will show how to setup and use the infrastructure. The benefits, drawbacks and opportunities can be discussed.
