The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, February 10.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

    SaltStack for SysAdmins

    Theo Baschak will be presenting how to use SaltStack to make
    your life easier, whether you administer a few hobby servers or
    an entire fleet of corporate systems. Enforce good SysAdmin
    (planning/testing/backup) skills by publishing templated
    configs! Run security updates on all your systems at once. Run
    pre-defined distributed Nagios host/service checks via the new
    Nagios module! For those that haven't heard of SaltStack
    before, it is a configuration management system that enforces
    state. It is usually compared with Puppet and Chef, and has
    been gaining popularity over the last few years.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

    Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1M28,
    Manitoba Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
    between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
