Config management 2.0

Senthil Velu Sundaram (~senthil13)


The whole DevOps movement is about no separate Dev and Ops teams. But with using heavy config management tools, we’re once again on the same place just that we’ve replaced bash scripts with yamls and central store. For a startup, this approach does not suit. We’ve taken a different approach and find it fruitful. In this talk, we will share our journey and why our approach could be useful to you. We will demo cloudlift which is the tool born out of this idea and implemented in Python
