 Subject: [Debian-NYC] Debian-NYC Workshop: What's in a package

 Debian-NYC is proud to announce the continuation of its workshop
 series with a workshop examining prototypical packages and looking at
 all of their components.

 This workshop will provide advanced theory useful for people modifying
 or creating packages. For people modifying packages, you'll learn many
 typical motifs and about various build systems. For creating packages,
 you'll be much better prepared to read and understand guides a deep
 level. However, this is still not a step-by-step guide in "how to
 build packages", but will get you very close to there.

 The Debian-NYC series of workshops as a whole is designed to introduce
 Debian, Debian tools and techniques, and the Debian community as well
 as provide skills to attendees. This workshop is targeted towards
 technically-skilled people who would like knowledge of the Debian
 packaging system and how to contribute back to the Debian
 community. Most of the material of these workshops will be applicable
 to other Debian-derived distributions, such as Ubuntu.

 For other Debian-NYC events, including Novice Nights aimed at new
 users, see .

 Please bring: A Debian (or other Debian-based distribution such as
 Ubuntu) computer with your preferred development tools on it. Extra
 computers may be available for you to use if you can't bring one; but
 please contact us ahead of time if you'd like assistance with
 machinery, so the folks who can bring extra know how much to bring.

 Date/Time/Location: October 27, 2010. Workshop begins at 19:00, please
 arrive between 18:30 and 19:00. Location: Control Group, located in
 the Woolworth building (233 Broadway, Manhattan, right next to city
 hall park, Manhattan). Tell the front desk that you are going to a
 meeting at Control Group, on the 21st floor. You need some sort of
 identification to get a visitor pass.
