Rudder presentation at FOSDEM

FOSDEMWe’ve been back from the latest FOSDEM in Brussels for a week now, but are only just recovering from the freezing-cold weather they had there…

As always, FOSDEM was a great event, with thousands of open source users, contributors and developers all mixing together and sharing their findings, software and thoughts. A real spirit of collaboration and possibility always reigns at FOSDEM, and this year was no exception.

For our part, we introduced Rudder, our open source configuration management tool in the Configuration Management devroom on the Sunday (see the official talk page). Our talk was well received, with many interesting questions. Thanks to those who were there, and those who made it possible!

Our slides are available on SlideShare, or you can just view them here:

We also did our share of collaborating, and plan-making. Developers from three of the main components of Rudder, CFEngine, FusionInventory and OpenLDAP, were at FOSDEM, and we got together to discuss each project, their integration into Rudder and ways to improve both our use of them and the community’s experience of them.

Some promising ideas were thrown around, hopefully you’ll hear more about them here soon!
