Wait, what? Getting your bearings with ServerSpec
Lightning Talk, Code4Lib 2019, San Jose, CA
Abstract: Library developers change jobs, we’re always the newbie. ServerSpec is a fantastic tool for keeping track of exactly what is supposed to be running on which server. Chances are such tests don’t exist in your current workplace; chances are such tests would be significantly helpful to your coworkers. This is a tool that should be in your box.
NOTE: this talk was originally submitted as a workshop. The workshop was cancelled at the last minute due to space constraints. I re-worked the introduction to the workshop into a lightning talk instead. It just barely fits in five minutes, if I read my speakers notes very quickly. I apologize for my lack of eye contact.
The two "live demo" portions are recorded and edited Asciinema screencasts. They did not display in the video recording of this talk, when I was using the Git-pitch embedded screencast functionality. It is my hope that using Reveal.js directly will produce a slide deck which will be capable of being recorded.
