Linux Developer Conference Brazil 2019 speaker: Vagrant Cascadian and Holger Levsen
Holger works on Reproducible Builds since 2014 and is a Debian Developer since 2007. A Debian user since 1995 and his hair color seems to be random but is not.
Vagrant maintains a zoo of arm boards for Reproducible Builds since 2015 and been a user of Debian almost the entirety of the current millenia, and a Debian Developer almost half as long. Vagrant also dabbles in GNU Guix and RISC-V.
There and back again, reproducibly! (in English)
There is an epic journey from reviewed source code to the code you actually run on your computer, and things can go quietly wrong along the way!
We can't do absolutely everything ourselves by hand, so we necessarily put trust into something somewhere along the way.
What happens to your code as it passes through dark forests, trecherous mountain passes, or deep forboding caverns? What if something is quietly corrupting an otherwise trustworthy ally? Help showing up, but with it's own motives?
Reproducible Builds gives a project confidence that the journey from source code to binary code gets you there and back again.
