The Best of SaltConf16

Contrary to popular belief the most frequent question about SaltConf16 was not, “Is that a real crystal chandelier?” We were mostly asked, “Is this thing being recorded? If so, when can I get the recording? Are the recordings available yet? Will the recordings be available in Betamax format? Why can’t you give me the SaltConf16 recordings already?!?!”

More than seventy very Salty talks were delivered at SaltConf16, and we recorded most of them. Five concurrent tracks of sessions covered a lot of ground from intelligent, event-driven automation, cloud orchestration, DevOps enablement, container control and modern configuration management.

Organizations like National Instruments, Virtustream, Lyft, Clemson University, USDA and Adobe shared how they are using SaltStack® to automate complex and unique infrastructures at scale. SaltStack engineers and developers unveiled details of the latest SaltStack innovation and shared Salt best practices covering topics like Salt Reactor and Beacons, Salt Proxy Minions, Salt Package Manager, Salt Formula and much more.

And we have the keynotes and breakout sessions from SaltConf16 sponsors like IBM Cloud SoftLayer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, VMware, SUSE and Virtustream that highlight how SaltStack is used to automate the enterprise infrastructure and application environments. Thank you to all SaltConf16 speakers and sponsors for helping us deliver the biggest and best SaltStack user conference yet.
