Yesterday I visited Durham University to give a talk on System Configuration and LCFG to the Computing Society. This is not quite as random as it might seem, I was an undergraduate at Durham and in all spent 7 years living in the city. Whilst I was an undergraduate I helped create the society in 1998, it’s great to see it still going 10 years on. It was good to see that the audience included quite a few staff from the central IT service, hopefully I wasn’t too disparaging about cfengine to put them off giving LCFG a try. One thing which attracted quite a bit of interest was the existence of the vmplayer image which we developed for the LCFG tutorial.
