Buildroot vs. OpenEmbedded/Yocto: A Four Hands Discussion - Alexandre Belloni & Thomas Petazzoni, Free Electrons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Buildroot and OpenEmbedded (the build system of the Yocto Project) are by far the most popular tools in the industry to build custom embedded Linux systems. While having the same general goal, they are significantly different in their approach to solve the problem, in their configuration, in their typical use scenarios
and their daily usage. Many newcomers are confused by the diversity of tools and especially in the choice between Buildroot and OE/Yocto Project.

In this four hands discussion comparing both solutions, we will attempt to clarify the differences, advantages and drawbacks of both tools. Alexandre Belloni will advocate the use of OE/Yocto, while Thomas Petazzoni will naturally advocate the use of Buildroot.
