Introduction to SaltStack
Submitted by Mike Place (@cachedout) on Monday, 6 April 2015
The objective of this talk will be to provide an introduction to the SaltStack platform.
In this talk, we will cover the basics of using SaltStack to configure servers and workstations through Salt’s powerful remote execution and configuration management engine. We will provide overviews of many of the core concepts and then provide demonstrations of each concept so that each attendee can immediately begin to use Salt to solve everyday problems in their IT environments.
