EuroPython Blog

The official blog of the EuroPython conferences.
Current edition: EuroPython 2014 in Berlin.

Featured talk “Rethinking packaging, development and deployment”

The talk “Rethinking packaging, development and deployment" will be given by Domen Kožar.

Packaging Python modules is a topic of its own in the Python world. A full stack of modules like setuptools, release management related tools etc. are available.

Domen Kožar will demonstrate how to replace technologies in the stack like pip, virtualenv, buildout, ansible, jenkins with NixOS. In this talk he will show how to develop and deploy Python projects that can be easily mixed with non-Python dependencies.

NixOS is a Linux distribution with a unique approach to package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package manager, it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable, and has many other advantages.

Domen Kožar studies electrical engineering and has been a GSOC student for four year (Gentoo, Plone, PylonsProject, PylonsProject). Besides his contributions to the content-management-system Plone he is involved with the development of the ZODB/Pyramid based application server SubstanceD. Domen is proud member of the Kiberpipa hackerspace in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
