Call For Participation to the Configuration Management Camp 2020

The RUDDER community will soon gather at the occasion of the Configuration Management Camp Gent (a.k.a. CfgMgmtCamp 2020) from 3 to 5 February 2020. This event brings together specialists and newcomers alike that are interested in infrastructure and configuration management generally or specifically involved in a given community : RUDDER, Puppet, Saltstack, Ansible, Terraform…

We will present the new features of RUDDER, but above all we would like you, RUDDER users, to present a talk! Tell us what you do with the solution!

You can submit a talk for Configuration Management Camp on cfp.cfgmgmtcamp.be/2020/, both for the main track and Rudder’s dedicated room until Sunday 3 November 23:59:59 CET.

Why is CfgMgmtCamp the must-attend event in the IT infrastructure automation

This is the 9th edition of the event, which attracts communities from all over the world : users, contributors, consultants, integrators, analysts, commentators, bloggers, journalists, and anyone else who is interested in participating.

The conference is a place where ideas are exchanged, old friends get together, new friends meet. With a Main Room that presents major cross-cutting topics and fascinating feedback, several dev rooms are dedicated to the different communities. RUDDER has a dedicated room, allowing you to gather with us and discuss new features, the roadmap and a whole lot of things about RUDDER.

We don’t have a “RUDDER Fest” (for now!) so this is the best moment to meet the RUDDER community, its contributors and developers!

 

What can we talk about?

For the Rudder room, any topics related to configuration management in general or Rudder in particular, or your specific use of Rudder would be great.

Remember, what you do day to day may seem obvious to you, but others are very keen to hear about it, and it will always make a great basis for discussions. A few ideas:

  • Feedback talk: look at my Rudder setup, what I do with it, how I worked around these issues
  • Future talk: what I’d like to do with Rudder or see in Rudder
  • Rant talk: the stuff that didn’t work well and needs to be made easier
  • Pro tips talk: how you make life easier with Rudder, what hacks you’ve set up to improve your setup

The learning process: how you went from no automation or other automation tools to Rudder, or how you learnt yourself or taught your colleagues about using Rudder.

Anything goes, of course! Feel free to reach out if you need a hand submitting or feedback on your idea – we’re happy to help.
