Join us for our next meetup, where:
Michael DeHaan will present on automating datacenter provisioning, configuration management, and software deployment using two projects he created -- Cobbler (http://cobbler.github.com) and Ansible (http://ansible.cc).
Ansible is an easy to use configuration management, orchestration, and task execution tool that uses SSH (and ZeroMQ) as a transport, and simple YAML files as a data language. Cobbler is a provisioning framework that assists with PXE, kickstart / preseed templating, DNS setup, DHCP setup, and power management -- all things that are typically necessary prior to using your configuration management engine.
Michael has been writing systems management software for about 10 years. He currently works with OpenStack at Cisco Systems, and previously helped create solutions for rPath, Puppet Labs, Red Hat, Adaptec, and IBM.
This time we're joining our new friends at Argyle Social in downtown Durham. I realize we've had several meetups in a row in Durham, but location and timing having't worked out to swing the meetup back to Raleigh or Cary. We will be swinging back through those areas in the future.
Argyle Social is located at 208 Rigsbee Avenue, Durham NC 27701.
Look for the Argyle Social sign on the door off of Rigsbee Avenue.
Parking is available on the street, as well as in the parking deck across from Rue Cler. You might need to take a ticket to enter the parking garage, but if you leave after 7pm (which if you're coming to the meetup, you will) then you don't have to pay.
Argyle has also agreed to provide pizza and beer.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
