This provides a chance for attendees to have hands-on experience with SaltStack, in addition to being able to ask more in-depth questions and discuss particular topics at greater length.
This workshop will extend some of the concepts coverered in the Introduction to SaltStack talk by giving attendees a chance to have hands-on experience with Salt. We will go through a series of hands-on exercises that will allow everyone to quickly see how Salt can be used to solve real problems in their organizations. Atendees will have a chance to ask questions, get individualized help and discuss Salt-specific use cases as a group.
Workshop Timings: 11 am - 5 pm.
Atendees must bring their own laptops and must have network access and an SSH client. Intermediate Linux knowledge is desireable but not required.
