On the 15th of april, in Paris (France), we took part in yet another Salt meetup. The community is now meeting up once every two months.

We had two presentations:

  • Arthur Lutz made an introduction to returners and the scheduler using the SalMon monitoring system as an example. Salt is not only about configuration management Indeed!
  • The folks from Is Cool Entertainment did a presentation about how they are using salt-cloud to deploy and orchestrate clusters of EC2 machines (islands in their jargon) to reproduce parts of their production environment for testing and developement.

More discussions about various salty subjects followed and were pursued in an Italian restaurant (photos here).

In case it is not already in your diary : Thomas Hatch is coming to Paris next week, on Monday the 19th of May, and will be speaking at dotscale during the day and at a Salt meetup in the evening. The Salt Meetup will take place at IRILL (like the previous meetups, thanks again to them) and should start at 19h. The meetup is free and open to the public, but registering on this framadate would be appreciated.
