Hi All,

Yesterday we had BangPypers meeting at ZeOmega office.  There was 10 members
came for the meeting.  There was no specific agenda for the meeting,
we discussed
some general topics related to Python.

I demonstrated the installation of Salt ( http://saltstack.org/ ).
Salt is a remote
execution and configuration management tool.  For those who missed, here is the
screencast I created today for the installation of Salt in Windows:

If you are interested to learn more about Salt, look at the excellent
documentation here:
http://salt.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html

You can replace remote execution systems like Fabric & Capistrano with Salt.
Also you can replace configuration management systems like Puppet,
Chef & CFEngine.

I have tried Salt with
RHEL,CentOS,Debian,Ubuntu,Fedora,FreeBSD,Windows 2008 Server R2
and Windows XP.  For example, if you want to install Salt in a CentOS
machine, just run
these two commands:

  rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-6.noarch.rpm
  yum install salt*

While talking about Salt, I also happened to demonstrate Jenkins
server I setup for the
same project ( http://jenkins.saltstack.org/ ).  Here is the
screencast I created sometimes
back for the same project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IRzPFYtyD4
This screencast walk through various code metrics available for Python like:
clonedigger, pep8, pyflakes, pylint & sloccount.

Regards,
