Subject: Cfengine 2: An introductory Overview
Presenter: Scott Lackey

Cfengine is probably the most widely deployed configuration management software and is widely considered to be the defacto standard. Since Cfengine is a highly customizable framework, it’s implementations can vary widely. This talk will be an overview of how cfengine works, and how to implement a basic setup. This talk will not cover Cfengine 3 or promise theory.
