Next Generation Config Mgmt

Speaker: James


A presentation about a next generation configuration management tool, and the specific problems this project solves. Three of the main design features of the tool include: * Parallel execution * Event-driven mechanism * Distributed architecture.

This talk will demo a prototype I've built that implements these ideas and which is written in golang. I will also show the automatic edge, automatic grouping and automatic elastic etcd clustering management features.

Attendees are encouraged to read an introductory blog post before the talk if they are interested!
