We will discuss package management for the major distributions - yum and apt being the most widely used. Package management is more than just yum and apt though; dpkg and rpm may not be as well known, but are necessary for installing and maintaining packages.
More than talking about how to use Yum and Apt (the major two package managers), we will look at the history of package management (there are more than just Yum and Apt), the concept of package management, how Yum and Apt operate from a high level, and maybe some other package managers if there is time. After researching this topic, I found there are several great resources for more information than you ever wanted on Yum and Apt.
Bring a laptop as well. We will try to work in some examples of package management and software installation.
