psadmin.conf: Automation Challenges for Administrators

The next video from psadmin.conf 2018 is available! Nate Werner focuses on sing change management (Git/GitHub) for your collection of admin and monitoring scripts and setting up GitHub branches for non-prod, production, with a change approval process and team code review. Nate also shares solutions for managing passwords with scripts, how to abstract them and prevent passwords from leaking in logs. He also shows how Rundeck can be used to protect and audit your script execution (streamline vault access).

We released the videos as a free course so you can find the videos in one place. Head over to the psadmin.io courses page and sign up. If you already signed up for the course, you can log in and the new video will be available.
