Event description


Foreman will be holding it's third annual Foreman Construction Day on Wednesday 7th February 2018 (the day after ConfigManagement Camp).

As with previous years, our aim is to build upon the previous 2-4 days of talks and discussions, and put it to use! We're open to all members of our community, such as

* New users looking for help getting started with Foreman
* Users looking to start contributing
* Code contributors to any of the core projects
* Puppet coders for the installer
* Plugin authors (new or existing plugins)
* Translators / documentors

This is a great opportunity to get (more) involved in the community, and spend some face-to-face hack time with other Foreman devs. Hope to see you there!

The exact agenda is under discussion, but this is the current plan:

  • 09.30 - Welcome & Introductions

  • 10.00 - Deep dive / workshop 1

  • 10.30 - Deep dive / workshop 2

  • 11.00 - coffee break

  • 11.30 - Deep dive / workshop 3

  • 12.00 - Lunch break

  • Afternoon - Coding time (with coffee break at 15.00)

  • 16.00 - Conclusions & Thanks

You're welcome to form groups and do some coding in the morning too - we should have several rooms available. Currently proposed sessions are:

  • Authorization in Foreman

  • Foreman UI components in React

  • Remote Execution

  • Managing Foreman with installer modules

  • Ansible in Foreman

You can tell us what topics you'd like to discuss on our Discourse Form.
