Subject: [Debian-NYC] Debian-NYC Workshop: What's in a package
Debian-NYC is proud to announce the continuation of its workshop
series with a workshop examining prototypical packages and looking at
all of their components.
This workshop will provide advanced theory useful for people modifying
or creating packages. For people modifying packages, you'll learn many
typical motifs and about various build systems. For creating packages,
you'll be much better prepared to read and understand guides a deep
level. However, this is still not a step-by-step guide in "how to
build packages", but will get you very close to there.
The Debian-NYC series of workshops as a whole is designed to introduce
Debian, Debian tools and techniques, and the Debian community as well
as provide skills to attendees. This workshop is targeted towards
technically-skilled people who would like knowledge of the Debian
packaging system and how to contribute back to the Debian
community. Most of the material of these workshops will be applicable
to other Debian-derived distributions, such as Ubuntu.
For other Debian-NYC events, including Novice Nights aimed at new
users, see http://wiki.debian.org/DebianNYC .
Please bring: A Debian (or other Debian-based distribution such as
Ubuntu) computer with your preferred development tools on it. Extra
computers may be available for you to use if you can't bring one; but
please contact us ahead of time if you'd like assistance with
machinery, so the folks who can bring extra know how much to bring.
Date/Time/Location: October 27, 2010. Workshop begins at 19:00, please
arrive between 18:30 and 19:00. Location: Control Group, located in
the Woolworth building (233 Broadway, Manhattan, right next to city
hall park, Manhattan). Tell the front desk that you are going to a
meeting at Control Group, on the 21st floor. You need some sort of
identification to get a visitor pass.
Registration: Free, space is limited, RSVP to (rkd at zgib.net).
