pdxdevops: Portland DevOps user group meeting: To package or not to package?
Puppet Labs on NW Park (old office)


Michael Stahnke of Puppet Labs will give a presentation on "Packaging". He'll talk about the correct way to create custom packages of software and incorporate them into your devops workflow so you can more effectively isolate changes and improve the repeatability of your configurations.

Igal Koshevoy will present "A Barbarian's Guide to Avoiding Packaging", a short talk on abusing your configuration system. Although not "correct", this approach can save time, simplify workflow, and minimize infrastructure needed compared to building custom packages in certain cases.

ABOUT THE GROUP: pdxdevops is a Portland, Oregon user group that explores the glorious intersection of software development and systems operations, and shares practical advice on working effectively in an era of agile infrastructure, server automation and cloud computing. Meetings are usually on the third Monday of the month. Website: && Twitter: @pdxdevops
