Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room B185
Note This meeting is at the Woodroff campus of Algonquin in Building T, room T-303 at 7:00pm
This month we will be having at least a talk on orchestration of systems. If any others come in over the next few days, this post will be updated to reflect the new information.
There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.
After Meeting Social:
After the meeting, there will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.
After the main talk there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.
This talk will be a short (hopefully between 30 - 45 min) introduction to Ansible which is a configuration management system like puppet, chef, cfengine, bcfg, etc. It does have some major differences as well, making it useful for managing things on a small scale as well as large scale. More details during the talk.
Scott has been haunting server rooms and using/administrating Unix and Unix like systems for more than 30 years now. His background includes IT infrastructure, system administration, deployments and migrations, security and management. He is currently working as a consultant for the federal government.
Algonquin College is close to the corner of Woodroffe and Baseline and right across from the Baseline transitway station. Room B185 is in Building B. Free parking is available in lots 8, 9 and 12 after 5pm.
