This talk is about the CMake build system.

CMake is a cross platform build system supporting Windows, Linux, UNIX, and Mac OSX platforms. Unlike other build system, CMake generates projects using the native build tools like KDevelop, Visual Studio, makefiles, and Xcode.

This allows developers to use the tools they are most productive with. In addition to building software, CMake provides a testing system called CTest, and a packaging system called CPack.

This talk will cover how to build, package and test software with the CMake family of tools.
