Development Tools

Currently, there are a number of development tools, such as Coccinelle, sparse and checkpatch, that are easily usable via the Linux build system and that are used by the Linux 0-day kernel test system. The goal of the Linux Plumbers 2014 Development Tools track is to exchange experiences on the use of these tools and to consider what should be done next. We particularly encourage presentations on current uses of development tools and on development problems that could benefit from tool support.

The microconference will consist of short presentations followed by discussions of related issues.

  • Johannes Berg (confirmed - but also wants to attend wireless and driver deprecation)

Discussion notes

This is a good place to record notes from your session. All too often, if notes were not written down, the session might as well not have happened.
