SaltConf pre-conference training will include full-day training sessions in three separate tracks including an introduction to the SaltStack platform, advanced training on using SaltStack for configuration management, and advanced training on using SaltStack for remote execution, cloud orchestration and infrastructure automation.

The SaltConf agenda is designed to provide knowledge and training to help attendees automate the data center better and faster than ever before through the power of the SaltStack automation platform.
