J. Paul Reed
Release Engineering: techniques, tips, tools, and tricks
Ever think about how that tangled mass of source code gets from
developers' workstations to your computer? How all those .c files get
translated into nice tarballs, RPMs/Debs, or binary installers? Or what
actually happens when it's time to "ship the bits" or there's a
"security fire drill?"
Enter build and release engineering: those unseen, unsung teams whose
sole reason for existance is ensuring developers' daily productivity.
Paul, a build/release engineer for VMware, will cover the historical
highlights of build/release engineering as a component of a disciplined
software engineering process, what those build engineering teams behind
the curtains really do all day (_other_ than yell at developers for
breaking the build), and the open source tools that drive the build
engineering process for hundreds of open source projects and companies.
Source code control and management, advanced bug tracking with Bugzilla
(including discussion of the impending 2.18 release's cool new features),
advanced tree-management with Bonsai, and managing continuous builds with
Tinderbox will provide the context for a discussion illustrating why
build and release engineers are becoming staples on the technical
staffs of software companies and high-profile open source projects alike.

About J. Paul Reed:
J. Paul Reed's first tour of duty on a build/release engineering team
began at Netscape Communications (_before_ it was a division of AOL).
While there, he was responsible for Tinderbox development and released
Netscape Communicator 4.07, 4.08, and 4.5 Preview Releases 1 and 2. He
later joined the Bugzilla team as a module owner and assisted in driving
Bugzilla releases. He currently works at VMware as a build/release
engineer responsible for shipping VMware's ESX Server bits. In his
spare time, he likes to fly planes and has an unhealthy obsession with
mixing electronic music and air traffic control audio streams.

GPG cryptography. Immediately after the presentation and continuing
at Stammtisch we can gather for a keysigning. For those who already
have keys, please remember to bring paper printouts of your 40-character
key fingerprint, as per the instructions in our howto docs. If you
haven't created a key yet, and for keysigning details, our howto docs
are a must read. http://www.nylug.org/keys . Please announce your desire
to sign keys on our mailing list so people can be prepared.
After the meeting ... Join us around 8:30pm or so at TGI Friday's,
located at 677 Lexington Avenue and 56th Street, second floor.
