Config Management Camp


7 February 2018


In tradition with other FOSS events there are a couple of events on the "Fringe" of Config Management Camp.

In the same venue as Config Management Camp we are hosting:

Foreman Construction Day

Wednesday, February 7, 10:00 - 16:30, Room TBD

Foreman will be holding its third Foreman Construction Day on Wednesday 7th February 2018, which is the day after Config Management Camp.

The aim is to build upon on the previous 2-4 days of talks and discussions, and put it to use! We're open to all members of our community, such as

  • New users looking for help getting started with Foreman
  • Users looking to start contributing
  • Code contributors to any of the core projects
  • Puppet coders for the installer
  • Plugin authors (new or existing plugins)
  • Translators / documentors

This is a great opportunity to get (more) involved in the community, and spend some face-to-face hack time with other Foreman devs. Hope to see you there!

Puppet Contributors Summit

Wednesday, February 7, 10:00 - 16:30, Room TBD

Puppet Labs is holding our fifth Puppet Contributors Summit in Ghent, Belgium on February 7th, 2018, the day after Config Management Camp. This event is for both existing and new contributors to Puppet, related projects, and modules, and we would love to see the following people attend the Contributors Summit!

  • People who submit pull requests and contribute code to our projects
  • Community members working on related projects
  • People who contribute to Puppet Labs modules or contribute their own modules to the Puppet Forge
  • Key community members who answer a lot of questions about using Puppet
  • Long-time Puppet users who are interested in doing more

Learn more about the Puppet Contributor Summit and other contributor events. All attendees at Puppet Labs events (speakers and participants) should adhere to our Community Guidelines and Event Code of Conduct. Register: Here

Habitat & InSpec Hackday

Wednesday, February 7, 10:00 - 16:30, Room TBD

Habitat is a simple, flexible way to build, deploy, and manage cloud native applications. InSpec is an open-source testing framework for infrastructure with a human-readable language for specifying compliance, security and other policy requirements.

We will break into small, self-selected working groups to hack on habitizing an application, using InSpec to validate a system, or other automation-related projects of your choice.

No Habitat or InSpec experience is required! It is not necessary to install anything in advance but you will be able to get going sooner if you have already installed the Chef Development Kit, Docker, and Habitat. We will introduce you to the concepts and get you some time with hands-on Habitat and/or InSpec.

Chef is dedicated to providing an inclusive and harassment-free experience for anyone who participates in events that are organized or hosted by Chef. All delegates/attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at any Chef event are required to conform to the Chef Code of Conduct.

Mgmt Hackathon

Wednesday, February 7, 10:00 - 16:30, Room TBD

Mgmt is next generation config management tool. The lead author will be on site to chat with you about mgmt, review your code, help you get your patch merged and there to listen to your design ideas for the project! Come to get help implementing your first native mgmt resource too! You're also welcome to drop in if you'd like to see any of the demos from the mgmt talks repeated. Don't be shy, newcomers welcome!
