Eat, drink, mingle






“systemd for mere mortals” by Lennart Poettering, Software Engineer at Redhat

Today, systemd is a core component of most commercial and community Linux distributions. If you work with Linux professionally or hack on it for fun, sooner or later you will come into contact with it. In this talk we’ll discuss what systemd is, the components it consists of as well as basics how to interact with it. This presentation is supposed to be a gentle but broad introduction into the systemd system and service manager, by one of its main authors.
