The open source ecosystem has long been at the forefront of innovation in software distribution and package management, whether we’re talking about Linux, open source library ecosystems like Node.js' or Python’s or Linux-based containers. Yet the mature and venerable stack of technologies underlying this innovation is being stretched in may different ways, with projects like Flatpak, Snaps, Nix, AppImage, OCI’s imagespec and others playing a role in defining what package management and software distribution will look like in the future. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the state of post-modern package management with emphasis on adoption and addressing the community’s concerns on use cases, where collaboration is needed and expected, how to govern this space and why should organizations care. Audience: IT management, software architects and IT professionals (DevOps, SRE, etc.) that are heavily invested in packaging technologies for software distribution, configuration management, etc., including APT, RPM, OCI image-spec and other containerized applications, languages with large library ecosystems such as Python, Node.js and Perl, and ecosystem/channel strategists for ISVs targeting open source stacks.
