The tool session is a short 10min share of real world experiences with tools and technologies that kicks off our events. This months tool session is Yeoman by Rudi Grobler

This months main session facilitator: ROUAN WILSENACH

Rouan is a software developer at ThoughtWorks in Johannesburg. He's passionate about writing code that makes an impact in people's lives. He writes code for a living and coaches others in agile engineering practices while he's doing it.

This months main session

Tooling for infrastructure automation has made huge strides in the last few years. Rouan will show you how to use Puppet, a tool that lets you automate the configuration and deployment of the software on your servers. You'll get to see Vagrant in action along the way, a tool that makes development and testing of your infrastructure code easier than ever.
