  • "Open Build Service in Debian" by Andrew Lee – Saturday, Mar. 24, 10:00 SGT.

    It is impressive how much time and resources a team can save by using the OBS to manages their packages creation and distribution. OBS is a generic system to build and distribute packages from sources in an automatic, consistent and reproducible way. Andrew will cover the benefits of using OBS, explain some of it features and workflow for all your packaging and releasing needs, like automatically build package from scratch on multiple target distros and architectures, easy access through QA to the developer's repo to generate new images with the changes for testing before integration into the production repo, vcs-like workflow as branch code, send merge requests and review submissions and flexible to connect additional resources to empower the backend worker(builders) even with different architectures. At the end tips on how to setup and optimize OBS will be provided.

  • "Orchestrating Continuous Integration through Containers" by Héctor Orón Martínez – Sunday, Mar. 25, 15:30 SGT.

    A case study on continuous integration (CI) pipeline for managing software distributions to build real life products. In this study, it shall be discussed how containerized FOSS tools can help on the project life cycle to bring products into market.


  • "Open Build Service in Debian (workshop)" by Héctor Orón Martínez – Saturday, Mar. 24, 10:30 SGT.

    Immediately following Andrew's presentation, Héctor will present a workshop on Open Build Service. During this workshop, he will run different configuration options and example cases to manage several distributions with OBS.
