Continuous Integration is not a solved problem

Kristian van der Vliet, Tuesday, February 7 , 15:40 - 16:20, B.CON

In a world where infrastructure is code, CI is important. Yet most Continuous Integration platforms are targeted at software developers, making them a poor fit for "non-traditional" workflows like Configuration Management. Many people struggle to fit these workflows into existing CI systems. In this talk I'll explain why I believe CI is not a solved problem, and how Config Management Camp inspired to me to finally do something about it. I'll introduce Cyclid, a Configuration Management system that tries to take some of lessons we've learned from the past 5 years of Configuration Management and apply them to Continuous Integration.
