This booklet shows how continuous integration can be used successfully for embedded software projects. Following a brief introduction to the basic concept, it examines the specific aspects of embedded projects. The booklet is rounded off by various examples of different hardware/software combinations.
Embedded software is not like other software. One reason for this is that new technologies, tools and methods are somewhat slow to infiltrate the embedded world. Agile software development methods offer tangible benefits specifically for embedded developments too – especially continuous integration.
This 32-page booklet explains the principles of continuous integration and specifically addresses the special challenges to be faced in an embedded environment. This includes information on development environments, cross-compiling and testability of embedded code. Numerous practical examples round off the booklet to complement the theory.
