Automation pipeline on Chromebooks for enterprises
Chrome is the by far most used Web Browser with around 68% market share. On top of that Chrome is one of the biggest open source repositories world wide. Chromebooks are computers based on the open source projects ChromeOS and Chrome. This talk will look into the automation pipeline of Chrome and ChromeOS specifically focusing on the enterprise customers. We will dive more detailed into the technical implementations of Google to produce a new version every 4 weeks and Chromebooks every 8 weeks.
To achieve 4 weeks release cycles automation in all areas of the release cycle is crucial and therefore we explore the background, used tools and technologies as well as some learnings from the process.
