SURFSara CFEngine library and how it's evolving
Bas van der Vlies
At SURFsara we have developed a general library to generate files from templates. In our setup we can easily specify the default values and override them in other json file(s) or via def.cf/json. The goal is to set up an global repository for mustache templates. This is the spinoff of last year talk: * http://cfgmgmtcamp.eu/schedule/cfengine/augments-def-json-bas-van-der-vlies.html
Bas is passionate about IT automation and he is active on many open source projects such as sali, pxeconfig, pbs_python, and email2trac. He has embraced CFEngine as early as 1996 at SURFsara, among other things, has contributed to the CFEngine parser. In 2012 the CFEngine team has invited Bas to Oslo to improve the reporting of syntax errors in the configuration files. He has also been a tremendous help within the Debian team to ensure that the Debian repository gets up to date CFEngine builds. Bas lives in Amsterdam and besides computers he likes traveling, music, sports (cycling, squash, snowboarding and speed skating) and walking on the beach with his dogs.
