Neil Williams - ARM snowflakes

The diversity of the ARM ecosystem raises complex problems for automation and continuous integration. This talk will use the example of the series of failed SD card multiplexer solutions versus the success of automating Linux kernel CI on ARM to look at why special snowflakes are hindering wider development and growth of ARM based systems. Can the ecosystem remain diverse whilst dropping some of what we want to prove we can do in favour of what we should do? Can we stop chasing our tails without losing the fun?
