Next Generation Config Mgmt: Reactive Systems
Mgmt is a next gen config management tool that takes a fresh look at automation.
The main design features of the tool include:
* Parallel execution
* Event driven mechanism
* Distributed architecture
* Declarative, Functional, Reactive programming language.
The tool has two main parts: the engine, and the language.
This presentation will demo both and include many interactive examples showing you how to build reactive, autonomous, real-time systems.
Finally we'll talk about some of the future designs we're planning and make it easy for new users to get involved and help shape the project.
A number of blog posts on the subject are available: https://ttboj.wordpress.com/?s=mgmtconfig
Attendees are encouraged to read some before the talk if they want a preview!
