+title: "Automating Application Configuration"
+---
+**Abstract:**
+
+In a company with a mature, complex, and multiple datacenter hosted Java SaaS application, managing the configuration of the complete infrastructure stack was tedious, complex, and error prone. We have successfully deployed Chef to create a data-driven, repeatable, and simpler method of managing almost all our application and server configuration data and files. By modeling our environment and creating “just enough” hierarchy we reduced the number of sources of configuration from hundreds of files to under five. We now have developers and application engineers working together on maintaining and expanding our automated infrastructure. We will describe how we progressed from static configuration files in Subversion to data-driven configuration in Chef giving examples and lessons learned throughout the process that you can use to automate your application configuration. In addition, we will discuss how automation and configuration management is now tested at multiple levels before reaching production.

+title: "ITIL and DevOps: Key Ingredients for Next Generation IT?"
+---
+**Abstract:**
+
+While many organizations have recognized and invested in ITIL and IT Service Management, initial emphasis has been placed primarily on production level processes such as Incident, Change and Problem Management. The growing influence and interest in DevOps may now serve as the crosswalk between agile development/SDLC and agile IT service management, injecting the best of both into the value chain to the customer.
+
+This presentation explores the relationship, differentiators, co-dependencies and cultural commonalities of ITIL and DevOps. The presentation will also explore the need to get organizations to recognize and integrate DevOps into their Service Management programs.

+title: "Riemann: a low-latency event monitoring system."
+---
+**Abstract:**
+
+Riemann is a monitoring system. Lightweight clients send arbitrary events to a Clojure server, which processes the event stream with a highly configurable DSL. Streams can compute statistics, throttle and roll up events, dispatch email, graph through Graphite, forward events between servers, and integrate with any Java or Clojure library. Clients can query for the current state of the the system to present graphs and dashboards. Riemann provides low-latency, transient shared state for distributed systems.
