May 2021 – Meeting Recap

By nick.moseley

Configuration Manager: it’s not just Configuration Manager. Huh? While we know that many of us came to this community because of MEMCM or MEM in general, it’s time to learn some of the basics of other configuration management platforms. Ever wonder how your Linux counterparts maintain their infrastructure? Curious if there are techniques in use that could simplify how you maintain Windows systems? Come take a peek behind the curtain with us as we outline how teams can leverage Chef and Ansible to simplify systems administration. We’ll explain how each tool operates, discuss common usage patterns, and step through a few demonstrations for both Windows and Linux endpoints. Presented by Taifur Ather, Cloud Infrastructure Engineer, DevOps consultant, and board member of MEMUG.
