- Basic familiarity with a GNU/Linux environment, some familiarity with config management would help.
A presentation about a design for a next generation config management tool, and the specific problems this design solves.
Three of the main design features of the tool include:

- Event driven mechanism
- Distributed architecture
This talk will demo a prototype I've built that implements these ideas. It is written in golang, and is completely free software.
