Monday and Thursday the 2nd and 3rd of February it is cfgmgmtcamp in Gent. Although I have been doing research in this area since 2008 I have never attended this event (it is free and only 1 hour by train from where I live).
This year is different. I am not only attending it, but I will also present Impera and why we developed it. It is the name of the tool which is part of my PhD. It has been available on Github for more than two years. However I never made any publicity. Now is different.
It is available as an open source tool, including many configuration model on Github. On readthedocs there is some preliminary documentation available. In the next weeks we will release more documentation and configuration modules.
At the same time I am working with two colleagues and our lab (DistriNet) to create a University spin-off Impera that will focus on cloud management. The tool that I will present on Monday is part of what we will offer. More on that later.
So, if you want a sneak preview for Monday you can look at the tutorial in the documentation. If you have any comments or questions, please let us know!
