CentOS Classroom and Packaging Workshop


Learn how CentOS works and how you can make it work better for you. CentOS is the open source, community operating system that releases just ahead of RHEL. The CentOS project also provides a space for people to build technologies on top of the operating system for specific use cases. This includes Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that package various types of software, including cloud computing, storage, hyerscale deployments, and automotive uses.

We will present an overview of the CentOS ecosystem, showing how the operating system is developed, what the various SIGs are doing, and what other deliverables you can expect. We will then provide a packaging workshop where you can learn how to package your favorite software, whether you want it in Fedora, EPEL, a CentOS SIG, or just for your own personal use. No prior packaging experience is necessary, but we will assume a basic familiarity with Linux and the command line.
