A while back I gave a talk on Salt: a remote execution engine written in python.
On the 27th July there will be an international Salt coding sprint, a great opportunity for anyone who is (or is thinking about) hacking on Salt to get together with others in the community, share ideas and help improve Salt.
If you're interested, you need to register to attend which you can do here. The event is sponsored so there will be lunch/snacks etc. throughout the day.
Full details here:
Hope to see some of you there.
