Packaging

This month, we have a very interesting presentation, that we planned to have a few months ago.

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.

Présentations

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.
Par Renoir Boulanger (@renoirbGithubKeybase)
