Presented by:

I am a SUSE software engineer based in the Czech Republic. I studied at the Faculty of Information Technology, Czech Technical University in Prague and just after graduating I started working at SUSE. Now I have been working for SUSE for 6 years as a packager (maintaining e.g. sudo, MariaDB or various archiving programs) and lately as a python developer (spec-cleaner, rpmlint). Besides my passion for open source and Linux, I love music, travelling and photography.

If you are interested in openSUSE, sooner or later you will probably learn how packages and specfiles work. But packaging is not a static knowledge you learn once and you are good to go. The rules are changing during the times, new macros are created and old are erased from history, new file paths are used and the old ones are forgotten. So how can one keep up with these changes?

In this talk, we will serve you all recent news or important changes in openSUSE packaging on a silver platter. You will learn why you should move distribution provided configuration from '/etc' to '/usr/etc', where Group tag disappeared, or which build macros you should use now. And if you don't want to remember all this stuff? No worries, we will show you which tools will help you write awesome packages.
