The first day of this year’s openSUSE Conference went well and the keynote speaker team of SaltStack Chief Technical Officer and technical founder Thomas Hatch along with Senior SaltStack Engineer David Boucha and SUSE’s Joe Werner showed how powerful Salt is for IT automation.
Boucha gave a live demo and Hatch talked about the evolution of Salt and even talked a little about Salt’s Thorium Reactor, which was added to Salt as an experimental feature in the 2016.3.0 release. Werner discussed how SUSE uses Salt with SUSE Manager.
Frank Sundermeyer, from SUSE’s Documentation Team, gave his impressions of the first day of the conference and details a litte more information about Salt in this blog entry.
The SaltStack Summit was standing room only and the talks will be available in the next few weeks for those who are interested is seeing all the convincing arguments for why developers should use Salt for automation.
