Vampires vs Werewolves: Ending the War Between Developers and Sysadmins with Puppet - PuppetConf 2013

Published on

"Vampires vs Werewolves: Ending the War Between Developers and Sysadmins with Puppet" by Bess Sadler, Manager for Application Development, Stanford University Library.

Presentation Overview: Developers need to be able to write software and deploy it, and often require cutting edge software tools and system libraries. Sysadmins are charged with maintaining stability in the production environment, and so are often resistant to rapid upgrade cycles. This has traditionally pitted us against each other, but it doesn't have to be that way. Using tools like puppet for maintaining and testing server configuration, nagios for monitoring, and jenkins for continuous code integration, Stanford University Library has brokered a peace that has given us the ability to maintain a stable production environment with a rapid upgrade cycle. I'll discuss the individual tools, our server configuration, and the social engineering that got us here.

Speaker Bio: Bess Sadler manages a software engineering team for the digital library group at Stanford University Libraries. She is a co-founder of several successful open source software projects including Blacklight (http://projectblacklight.org) and Hydra (http://projecthydra.org), which are used by libraries, museums, archives, and cultural institutions around the world.
