Topic: Salt Stack - A Brief Overview

Presenter: Kyle Brieden

There's lots of choices today when it comes to managing and automating your infrastructure. With an ever growing demand for automation, event-driven infrastructure, and split-second reactions, SaltStack is an outstanding choice to maintain your farm. Whether your farm is 5 snowflake pets or more than 10,000 head of cattle, consider spreading a little Salt across your servers to make everything taste a little better.

Kyle has been using Linux since college in early 2009. He broke into the IT industry with a front-line support role at Rackspace before moving into an Operations role at WP Engine and later a DevOps role at Macy's Systems and Technology. He is a hobbyist, always itching to learn new technologies to expand his resume and grow as a SysAd and DevOps Engineer. His resume can be found at .

This is the ALE monthly meeting. The format is a one-hour presentation (approximate) followed by an informal Linux technology and troubleshooting Q&A session.

Graciously hosted by the Decatur Makers ( on West Ponce de Leon.

Please follow the DM parking advice: Although there is parking available in the church parking lot at the makerspace, we suggest you consider parking across the street or around the corner in the neighborhood to avoid conflicting with a pre-existing weekly Tuesday night church event.
