A meetup for systems administrators, site reliability engineers, data center operators, DevOps-minded folks, SaltStack customers, users and contributors. SaltStack is software used for enterprise-scale infrastructure automation, cloud orchestration and application deployment and configuration management. The SaltStack open source software project was written in Python and according to GitHub is one of the largest and most active open source projects in the world. SaltStack is used by Web-scale IT organizations like LinkedIn, Hulu, Salesforce.com, NASA JPL, Clemson University, Photobucket, XMission, and thousands more. We are looking for group members who are interested in sharing and participating by giving talks and SaltStack use case demonstrations and by sharing lessons learned and good SaltStack practices. Please let us know if you'd be willing to give a talk at an upcoming SaltStack Chicago meetup, or request a topic that you'd like to be addressed.
