Session Abstract

Fuego is yet another automated test framework for Linux. But it is different from other systems in a few key ways. This session will introduce Fuego and describe a few of its features that are different (to Tims knowledge) from other test systems like LAVA, Buildbot, or LTP.

Some of the features are Fuegos focus on individual board testing (rather than test labs), results analysis separated from the test itself, and on building a suite of tests readily available to begin testing.

Tim will also share some of his vision for the future of open source testing, and what features of Fuego are being prototyped now to move towards that vision. (That is, Tim will share his Fuego roadmap.)
