Engage is a new open-source, Python-based platform for deploying and managing applications, either on your own servers or in the public cloud. It automates server provisioning, application installation, configuration, and upgrades. The technology behind engage combines ideas from Linux package managers, constraint solvers, and existing deployment frameworks such as Puppet or Chef. In this talk, we will look into the design of Engage, how to use Engage, and how to extend it. The talk will conclude with a discussion on lessons learned, including the use of domain specific languages, software evolution, and testing strategy.
Engage is available under the Apache License at http://github.com/genforma/engage.
Jeff is a co-founder of genForma, a startup building a Platform as a Service offering on top of Engage.
Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
