While other configuration formats are available elsewhere in Salt, the format of all
of these core configuration files is YAML ... Inside the /etc/salt/ directory, there is
also a pki/ directory, inside which is a master/ or minion/ directory (or both).

Some prior Python development experience is expected. What You Will Learn Understand the working of Salt's Loader system Write several of the most common types of Salt modules Interact between different kinds of modules and build new ones Submit open source modules upstream to the Salt project Make Salt interact with third-party services and applications In Detail Salt already ships with a very powerful set of tools, but that doesn't mean that they all suit your needs perfectly. By adding your own modules and enhancing existing ones, you can bring the functionality that you need to increase your productivity. Extending SaltStack follows a tutorial-based approach to explain different types of modules, from fundamentals to complete and full-functioning modules. Starting with the Loader system that drives Salt, this book will guide you through the most common types of modules. First you will learn how to write execution modules. Then you will extend the configuration using the grain, pillar, and SDB modules. Next up will be state modules and then the renderers that can be used with them. This will be followed with returner and output modules, which increase your options to manage return data. After that, there will be modules for external file servers, clouds, beacons, and finally external authentication and wheel modules to manage the master. With this guide in hand, you will be prepared to create, troubleshoot, and manage the most common types of Salt modules and take your infrastructure to new heights! Style and approach This book follows a step-by-step tutorial-based approach explaining the different types of modules, from fundamentals to complete and full-functioning modules.

"This video course covers the theory behind, and the hands-on application of, those concepts needed to maximize the throughput of your organization. The course introduces frameworks for discussing DevOps principles and brings those concepts to life with explanations and real working code. It instills a deeper insight into applying DevOps principles with a variety of tools like Puppet, Saltstack, Vagrant, and Graphite. You will learn how to automate and build configurations for infrastructure servers and then address areas of automation, continuous deployment, containers, and monitoring. You will create impressive changes to how you deliver software and services. This course will help all those who wish to work in a DevOps culture, who are responsible for delivering both new features and stability. Such teams will work closely across the entire organization to ensure a shared responsibility, which is no longer just ops or dev territory; most importantly, they work together in areas like continuous delivery, automated deploys, and infrastructure/configuration management. With the help of this course, such teams no longer need to wait for other teams to solve a problem: fixes can be made quickly, all by learning tips and techniques to succeed with DevOps."--Resource description page.

"Infrastructure as a code is one of the foundations of DevOps Automation toolchain. Chef is at the forefront of the IaaC revolutions and was the first tool amongst the four main configuration management tools including Puppet, Ansible and Saltstack .Chef is also the fastest configuration management system and provides a simple DSL (Domain Specific Language) to define the state of resources and does the heavy lifting of managing underlying platform specific operations by itself, providing users with a higher level of abstraction than scripts do. The use of Chef is no more limited to servers, but has also expanded to managing all type of devices including routers, embedded systems, storage and so on. With more and more organizations adopting DevOps practices, knowledge on IaaC and tools such as Chef is essential for today's generation of DevOps professionals. This skill would also help you advance your career, especially for operations, systems, networks, and DevOps engineers. It then helps you dive into the world of Chef by understanding the basics of the languages such as resources/providers, manifests, and modules, and then delves deeper into creating dynamic code with parameters, templates, defined types and so on. Once equipped with the basics, it unlocks Chef's full potential with advanced topics such as environments, hiera, r10k, puppet enterprise, rolls and design patterns and so on. This course takes you from zero to Chef master in two weeks."--Resource description page.
