[Baypiggies] Future ideas: A salty ansible

In recent BayPIGgies (and MeetUp) talks, we discussed Configuration
Management (in passing). Ruby seems to be ruling this space with Chef and
Puppet. However, in our meeting we discovered Salt (a Python equivalent).
Well, now I just discovered ansible.

Salt: http://saltstack.com/community.html

PyPI: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/ansible/1.1
Docs: http://ansible.cc/docs/

Also, although it is Chef based (Chef Solo), we've recently discussed
OpsWorks from Amazon as well.

I'd love to see a talk that goes over the concepts of these four (possibly
five) products, and makes it easy to digest. There's no way I can give this
talk as I am struggling with Chef and Puppet and never really dove into
Saltstack or Ansible. However, if different people volunteered to give a 15
min presentation on each of the components (and collaborated on a common
intro on concepts), it may make it manageable. I could demo OpsWorks from
Amazon and how it can be used to build a Python, Django, gunicorn, nginx

Just an idea to throw out there... Any interest?

master's chase. Do what you love. Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it,
unearth it, and gnaw it still."
