Subject: Cfengine 2: An Introductory Overview
Presenter: Scott Lackey

Cfengine is probably the most widely deployed configuration management
software and is widely considered to be the defacto standard. Since
Cfengine is a highly customizable framework, it’s implementations can
vary widely. This talk will be an overview of how cfengine works, and
how to implement a basic setup. This talk will not cover Cfengine 3 or
promise theory.


Scott Lackey is a unix systems automation engineer who has ten years of
consulting work for NASA, IBM, Caterpillar and other Fortune 500
companies. He is currently a systems engineer at Clearwire.
