Speaking at SaltConf 2015

My talk has been accepted to SaltConf 2015 this year. I will be in Salt Lake City March 3rd through March 5th. I’ll be speaking about my experience deploying WebPageTest with SaltStack. We’ll talk about the benefits and gotchas of WebPageTest and SaltStack during this presentation. You’ll also see copious amounts of stateful PowerShell being used. If you have ever tried using Salt to managed Windows machines, this talk is certainly a must see!
