Continous integration has gained a lot of popularity in the open source world in recent years, with the loud/web world at the forefront. The kernel world has however been somewhat slow to catch-up, especially in the embedded world, services like KernelCi and the 0-day are incredibly useful services once patches are flowing upstream but are limited in their scope.

In this talk we’ll go over how CI best practices can be used when doing kernel development, and how with a little bit of infrastructure and tooling one can setup a “mini-kernelci” to run tests relevant to the current development on actual embedded hardware.
