Learn by teaching

Dojo

Kari and I had dinner last night with some good friends who have just opened their new dojo1 in John's Landing, Portland. Along with the beer and wine, we had lots of philosophical discussions, because that's how Tony is. He's fully immersed in this philosophy and is happiest sharing this love with people he cares about. It's part of what makes him such a great teacher.

Using MCollective to generate spiffy Shellshock reports for your boss

 

If you haven't heard of Shellshock, you should crawl out from under your rock and do some Googling. Back? Ok, great. I won't explain what it is, but if you're reading this post, you've probably been tasked to find and patch all vulnerable systems. And management would like to see a comprehensive report of which machines have been patched....

Luckily enough, with Puppet, Facter, and MCollective, that's a trivial task.
