Config Management Community

Awesome, Awful or Apathetic?

The leading configuration management tools, Ansible, Chef, Puppet, and others, are open source products, so active communities have formed around these technologies. The people participating in this community are one of the things that really stand out. When you ask about the best part of this community, the most common response is “the people,” since they tend to be welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, helpful. The community certainly isn't perfect, and there are some challenges. This talk will cover a variety of wonderful and not so wonderful things about the configuration management community.
