Hosting git.kernel.org and building your own packages

This month, we have two very interesting presentations lined up. One we planned to have a few months ago, and a brand new one.

The meetup is back to our usual place, now named Centre cloud.ca, at 420 Rue Guy.

Food & beverages will be sponsored by Lightspeed POS. As usual, our sponsor for the space is Centre cloud.ca.


Packaging for easier redeployment
Description: In this short talk we will be covering a crucial step to ensure your
infrastructure is always consistent and fast to re-deploy; packaging.
Maybe your setup has to have a very specific run-time engine extension
that has to be compiled at every install, or a service package is only
available as a zip file or as sources.
We’ll be covering how to use make, fpm and setup your own Debian
repository. Also, I´ll show how you can leverage your CDN to store
files for you.

Things I learned from running git.kernel.org
Description: Kernel.org is the host of one of the most popular git repositories in
the world — the Linux kernel. In this presentation, I’ll share my
experience in:
- Synchronizing the contents across 3 geo-distributed mirrors
- Configuring the servers so they can handle the attention
- Optimizing the git daemon for improved performance
