GatorLUG Meeting Agenda for September, 15 2010

6:00 - 6:30 Announcements / General Discussion

Freedom for HDMI | Hackerspace on the move

6:30 - 7:20 Configuration Management (CM)| David Nessl

Mention CM to most IT people and they think about version control systems, 
like CVS, Subversion, and GIT. Those discussions inevitably lead to branch-
merge strategies, which have gotten interesting with the advent of Agile 
development. But CM also encompasses a bigger picture. David refers to this as 
object-oriented Change Management. Tools like cfengine/puppet are limited 
examples for sysadmins, SCM and version control are examples for software 
development, IPAM is an example for network administration, etc.

One example David will review is a CM tool he built to manage Websphere 
configurations at Nationwide Insurance, where the organization had to keep 
30,000+ configuration entries consistent between dozens of cluster members and 
promotion levels.

David wrote the SCM Guide adopted as the enterprise-wide standard at 
Nationwide Insurance (Fortune 100), and has written several published articles 
on CM for CM Crossroads magazine and other publications.

7:20 - 8:00 Open discussion, meet and greet someone new

See you there,

Clinton Collins, President
GatorLUG, Gainesville, Florida
