Introducing the Meson build system

The fastest build system in the world

This talk will present the Meson build system. It has been designed from the ground up to be fast. These tips and tricks are explained and their performance impact is demonstrated via measurements. The total impact of these techniques is that in some common cases builds can be done up to two orders of magnitude faster than with regular build systems. In spite of this the syntax of Meson is clearer and easier to edit than with other build systems.
