Automated Software Delivery on Linux,
Continuous Delivery of software on Linux ,
As operations persons we like to have software installed from apt or yum repositories in clean packages.
We want to be able to trace the origin of a file and have smooth upgrade paths.

fpm, fpmcookery, omnibus, specfiles to the rescue, or chaos and hairpulls.
This talk will guid you trough the maze of how to deploy software, from different sources in a sane way.
How and when to use different packaging tools that will make your life easier, and how this approach will help you in growing towards a #devops approach
