Packaging Training: Tutorial on Debian/Ubuntu Packaging

Have you ever wanted to package an application so that you can easily distribute it to your Ubuntu or Debian friends? On Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 14:00 UTC in #ubuntu-classroom on, Bilal Akhtar will teach you all you need to know to do just that. As always, logs will be available following the session.

Shortly after this session, you can then proceed to learn how to get your newly packaged application into the Ubuntu repositories through Debian in Paul Tagliamonte’s Packaging Training Session.

NOTE 2: Third time is the charm. We are sorry for all of the confusion, but we have a guarantee from Paul that the session will take place onWednesday, November 24, 2010 at 00:00:00 UTC.

NOTE: Due to some date confusion, this session did not happen. It has been rescheduled for Monday, November 22, 2010 at 00:00:00 UTC

Although he might not be an official Ubuntu Developer, Paul Tagliamonte has plenty of experience working with packages. He has recently gone through the process of getting a new package added to the Ubuntu repositories via Debian, and he is here today to share this knowledge with us. The session will take place on Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 00:00:00 UTC in #ubuntu-classroom on Logs will be available following the session.

If you enjoy these types of sessions, I would encourage you to check out Daniel Holbach’s recent blog post, which is trying to gather suggestions on ways to improve these types of events. Additional information on Packaging Training Sessions is available on the wiki.
