Foreman Logo

After the success last year we decided to celebrate the 8th Birthday of the Foreman Project again at event room Kesselhaus on July, 27th. As feedback was very good about the provided content we decided to provide the same schedule.

We will start right after lunch at 12:30pm with a hands-on session, so you can do your first steps with Foreman, have a look into latest development or get some inspiration which plugins to add to your environment. There will be some experienced users and developers around to help you, give you some tips for your environment or do some in-person hacking. The demos will showcase several ways of provisioning, configuration management with Puppet and Ansible, orchestration, monitoring integration and other plug-ins.

After a short coffee break we will have 3-5 talks for 30-40 minutes depending on how many speakers I can find. Already confirmed speakers are Ewoud Kohl van Wijngaarden, Michael Moll and Timo Goebel, all being long-term users and contributors to the Foreman Project. I am still looking for someone willing to talk about how he is using Foreman, so if you want to give a case study talk simply drop me a mail.

It would not be a party if we would not have at least some Pizza and Beer afterwards. And the Foreman’s Community guy Greg Sutcliffe already promised some swag to take home with you.

So if you want to join us, please register for free here. This will enable us to order enough food and drinks. We will keep you updated on twitter and on the event page. As a teaser you can watch the recording of me giving a demo at OSDC.

If you can not make it to our event, keep your eyes open for an event near you. For example Julien Pivotto already announced one in Belgium.
