Technical level: Beginner
Foreman is a complete life-cycle management tool and takes care of provisioning, monitoring, configuration management and health of a server. Foreman has been ranked as the 3rd most popular tool in the Configuration Management Camp 2018 which makes it an important tool to know and understand.
The talk will explain the key features like provisioning, monitoring, and configuration management in brief and how easy it becomes to have all these features under the same hood. The talk will consist of how foreman manages to solve real-world problems and how I began my journey with the Foreman project. Lastly, I will show the attendees, how they can contribute the project and the benefits of the same.
Baisc knowledge of linux, little understanding about networking and the desire to learn something new would be a plus.
