Configuration Management with Cfengine

6:30pm, Suspenders Restaurant


Cfengine is a policy-based configuration management system. Its primary
function is to provide automated configuration and maintenance of
computers, from a policy specification.

The cfengine project was started in 1993 as a reaction to the complexity
and non-portability of shell scripting for Unix configuration
management, and continues today. The aim was to absorb frequently used
coding paradigms into a declarative, domain-specific language that would
offer self-documenting configuration.

about the speaker:

Steven Kreuzer has been working with Open Source technologies since as
long as he can remember, starting out with a 486 salvaged from a
dumpster behind his neighborhood computer store. In his spare time he
enjoys doing things with technology that have absolutely no redeeming
social value.
