PuppetConf 2014 – Opening Night
September 23, 2014 | DevOps | Kevin O'Brien
Last night, we opened up PuppetConf 2014 at the cocktail reception hour, to a fantastic reception: amidst a dubstep and dance music backing, the Puppet team went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable, with a friendly and open bar, servers threading between the crowd with a wide range of hors d’oeuvres, and a lot of deep conversation about what Conjur is and how it works.
We chatted about RADIUS and Kerberos, and their respective role in the modern IT infrastructure (still there, but harder to rely on exclusively), how Netflix used Conjur to avoid implementing a new AD or OpenLDAP system (lots of heads nodding), and how easy it was to get started with Conjur at no cost.
We’re looking forward to many more over the next two days – come say hello! We’re on the Golden Gate Level, just outside of the coat check room, and we’ll be raffling off a video-enabled AR drone, handing out our (we think) cool t-shirts, and going deep on how to monitor, manage, secure, and audit your infrastructure with Conjur.
