lecture: 8 Years of Config Management
a journey through one company's challenges and learnings
Starting with a small Puppet deployment in 2009, followed by the spread of Bcfg2 and finally the development and full-scale adoption of BundleWrap, we explore how configuration management at //SEIBERT/MEDIA has changed over the years.
This is not a talk about what you should do, but one about what we did – and more importantly where we went wrong. Learn from our mistakes as we did, both on a technical level and from a human perspective as we scaled our config managment from 1 to 30 contributors and 700 servers. Understand why we made BundleWrap and how some of its unique features help us every day.
