as well as human aspects of such a large migration like getting buy-in from stakeholders, documenting process and maintenance

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.
