From source to RPM in 120 minutes

In this lab, we'll learn best practices for packaging software using the Red Hat Enterprise Linux native packaging format, RPM. We'll cover how to properly build software from source code into RPM packages, create RPM packages from precompiled binaries, and automate RPM builds from source code version control systems (such as git) for use in CI/DevOps environments. And finally, we'll hear tips and tricks from lessons learned, such as how to set up and work with pristine build environments and why such things are important to software packaging.
