It’s Battle of the Configuration Management tools this month at the DevOps Exchange!

This months event sees the powerhouses of Configuration Management all together on one stage;

Puppet v Chef v Ansible

We have 20 minute talks from:

Chef: Stephen Nelson-Smith – Consultant

Building an SSL-enabled Gitlab server, test-first

Synopsis: One of the key differentiators of Chef ecosystem is its mature testing framework. In this live demonstration, a Gitlab server will be built, from scratch, test-first, demonstrating Chef's code reuse, the Test-Kitchen framework, Serverspec and ChefSpec.

Puppet: Gareth Rushgrove – Senior Software Engineer

Ubiquity - Moving past file, package and service with Puppet Gareth Rushgrove Puppet Labs

In the last few years we've all got much better at managing the configuration of node level resources like files and packages. But our infrastructures are only getting larger and more complex, and today we're more likely to be talking about clusters and distributed systems than individual hosts. This talk will cover a number of things Puppet is doing to make this shift easier - from support for hardware devices and tools like etcd to cloud provisioning and docker.

Ansible: Mark Phillips - UK Consultant

Go Agentless!

Configuration Management tools are an enabler to greater things - they should smooth the path to delivering for your customers. Tonight we'll show you why Ansible is the simplest way to automate IT.

The event is being hosted by our good friends at DigitasLBi at their fantastic offices in Brick Lane.

It’s also the final DevOps Exchange of the year and there will also be an opportunity for a few Christmas drinks and pizzas afterwards.

Look forward to seeing you there!
