Config Management Camp

3 and 4 February 2014

Gent, Belgium

Automated Everything Now What ?

So you've got config management, now what? Take things to higher level, try to 'outsource' simple, repetitive SysAdmin tasks you can't be bothered with ("create a DB", "Add this vhost") to your customer. But if your customer isn't a dev, DevOps scares you or you can't/won't share your code, you need to provide your customer with a way that allows you to be lazy. This will be a brainstorm-like session that discusses possible future trajectories for automating _everything_, keeping them based on config management.

About Pieter Lexis

Pieter recently received his master's degree in System and Network Engineering and was a part-time and now a full-time SysAdmin at Kumina. Besides SysAdmin specialists, Kumina are curious people who want to know everything there is to know within their field. They try to tie everything together using only open-source technologies: using monitoring and trending to improve the configuration of the systems managed and preferably doing so in an automated fashion.
