Best practices for porting open source packages to Power

Overview

Enterprise applications are typically quite complex, composed of a wide variety of commands, tools, and libraries. Often there is a mix of open source and closed source code in any major application. This tutorial describes a series of steps (specifically focused on open source components) that can be followed to evaluate the complexity and understand the requirements for porting the application suite to the Linux on Power (ppc64le) platform. Most of these steps would also apply to proprietary source code which needs to be ported to the Linux on Power platform as well.

Learning objectives

This tutorial describes a four-step evaluation process using an example, Jitsi, which is a collection of open source voice, video conferencing, and instant messaging applications.
