When it comes to efficiently managing even large system landscapes, Salt is a popular tool. As a representative of the Infrastructure as Code tools, it implements desired states in a controlled and incremental manner; administrators do not have to worry about the steps required for this. States are defined in human- and machine-readable YAML format, which makes it a bit easier to get started than other solutions. The tool also has nothing to hide when it comes to extensibility; for example, it allows real-time communication with third-party systems and the automatic application of countermeasures for infrastructure changes. This workshop covers the basics needed to get started with Salt in a solid way. Common concepts are explained and reinforced using interactive tasks.
