Next Generation Config Mgmt: Resources

Presented by James Shubin
Monday 2:05 p.m.–2:30 p.m. in Guthrie Theatre CB06.03.28
Target audience: Developer


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 And a: * 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. We'll focus on how to get developers involved so that they can build a resource or a function to fit their specific needs! 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.
