Hello Local Linux Community,
I'm an opensource enthusiast who has recently moved to the area and looking
to get a bit more connected.
I'm currently working on an instant infrastructure project to assist small
to medium offices (non-profits and education are my primary targets) setup a
functioning centrally managed computing and network infrastructure.
The initial code is up at github.
Long term we should be able to boot an entire infrastructure from a
smartphone or simple network device and create usb boot sticks for anything
that doesn't do pxe booting.
It will take bare metal machines (no os, no virtualiziation) and build them
up with Ubuntu, XP, and/or Vista configured with a chef-client to keep them
maintained centrally via a chef based infrastructure.
I'm hoping to pull a demo together by mid-september and present at Software
Freedom Day weekend (Waikato on Saturday and St. Mary's on Sunday).
I'd been keen to have coffee or chat with anyone interested in working with
me on this project.
