Welcome, new & old alike!

Justin W. Flory (@jwf / @jflory7) - 29 November 2018

Hi RITlug!

Welcome to Week 13. Join us this week for a guest presentation from Jason Carr on cross-distribution packaging.

Jason will discuss the problems and difficulties with existing package managers on Linux. Two solutions have come about:

  1. Bundled application managers
  2. Improved package managers

Additionally, Jason will give a comparison of bundled applications: Snap, Flatpak, and AppImage. He will also talk about the cross-distro package managers Nix and Guix.

We hope to see you at this week’s meeting. If you aren’t in our Slack already, don’t forget to come and say hello!
