What better place than SaltConf to hold our third Salt Sprint? We’ve never had an opportunity to do an in-person Sprint with all participants and look forward to the opportunity this format will provide to efficiently collaborate on SaltStack development.

Salt Lake City (PRWEB) December 17, 2013

SaltStack, the full software stack for configuration management, private cloud building, public cloud orchestration and autonomic infrastructure, today announced the next Salt Sprint will be held at SaltConf 2014 on Jan. 29, 2014 running in conjunction with the SaltConf conference party. The Salt Sprint will be sponsored by GitHub.

For this Sprint, no remote access will be made available for other locations in order to maximize the in-person experience of SaltConf attendees. Salt Sprint objectives include:

  • More SaltStack support for software defined networks;
  • More public cloud management support;
  • Develop more Salt monitoring modules and runner alerts;
  • Create more SaltStack test coverage;
  • Further populate the SaltStack formula repository;
  • Add more real-time SaltStack command modules.

Salt Sprint contributors are welcome to suggest projects for the Sprint by emailing sprint(at)saltstack(dot)com. For those new to developing with SaltStack, the first full day of SaltConf will include a series of labs designed to provide instruction specific to developing and committing code to the Salt project. Salt Sprint newcomers are invited to watch, learn, network and participate.

The Sprint will include a friendly code-contribution competition tracked via GitHub, the SaltConf Salt Sprint exclusive sponsor. Fabulous prizes will be provided to winners.

Thomas Hatch, SaltStack CTO and co-founder, said, “What better place than SaltConf to hold our third Salt Sprint? We’ve never had an opportunity to do an in-person Sprint with all participants and look forward to the opportunity this format will provide to efficiently collaborate on SaltStack development with some of the most talented developers in the industry. We love our community and contributors.”
