#6 [Talk] Too Fast/Too Slow: When does Modularity make sense?
Closed: Talk Scheduled 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by sgallagh.

Modularity is the Next Big Thing in Fedora, but is it the right hammer for your particular bolt?

This talk will walk through the benefits and drawbacks to converting your project from a traditional RPM to a Fedora Module. It will discuss how to analyze the cost-benefit ratio of maintainer effort vs. end-user utility as well as comparing and contrasting some of the alternative tools to accomplish similar tasks (such as Software Collections, Docker Containers and Amazon Linux Extras).


Update: @langdon (Langdon White) will be co-presenting this talk with me.

I'm assuming the audience for this is "current Fedora packagers". Or?
