I’ll be presenting at two conferences in two weeks.
On February 1st and 2nd I’ll be at FOSDEM in Brussels, where I’ll present the seminar “The classification problem: challenges and solutions“. In 20 minutes I’ll try to give you an idea of why classification in configuration management is critical, why it is difficult, and how you can make it sane.
Since 20 minutes may not be enough to treat the subject in detail, I got the opportunity to explain things in full at the Configuration management camp in Gent/Ghent/Gand, that will take place on February 3rd and 4th. I’ll be in the CFEngine / Rudder Community Room and will have 40 minutes to present “External node classification, the CFEngine way”. It’s the same seminar as FOSDEM; however, I’ll be able to show some examples of what makes classification difficult when you try to do it only “internally” with your CM tool of choice, and I’ll be able to show analogies and differences between Puppet and CFEngine when it comes to external node classification.
I hope to see some friends from the community there. If you’re going to any of these conference and want to say hello, just reach out 😉
