CFEngine Fundamentals & Industrialization (1, 2 or 3 day classes)
A non-technical intro will provide attendees with an understanding of the aims, advantages and constraints of configuration management in modern IT environments, CFEngine's role in this field, and will provide key points for planning and driving successful adoption. If you choose to add the third day, the class moves on from elementary examples to real-world requirements, including complex parameters, reporting, interaction with other tools and planning changes.
Designed for System Administrators and Architects, this class will present an in-depth overview of how to use CFEngine 3 to automate and manage large-scale IT infrastructure.
Through a combination of theory, practical examples, and hands-on tutorial, our experienced trainer will demonstrate how CFEngine 3 can be used for a wide range of common SysAdmin tasks.
To make the most of the session, the day's topics will be customized to the attendees' interests.
