Mgmt is a real-time automation tool that is fast and safe.
As we get closer to a 0.1 release that we'll recommend as "production ready", we'll look at what we've been stuck on and what's left.
In particular the complexity of building "lambdas" for an FRP language was more difficult than I had imagined, and I'll be asking for your help to finish mgmt.
There have also been a lot of fun new concepts which have landed since the last conference, and I'll demo many of these ideas for you.
As you already know, mgmt uses a real-time, reactive programming language to model the desired state over time, and a powerful event-driven engine to apply this state.
We'll show lots of real-time demos to keep everyone entertained.
Finally we'll talk about some of the future designs we're planning and make it easy for new users to get involved and help shape the project.
This presentation will contain many demos and interactive examples showing you how to build reactive, autonomous, real-time systems.
A number of blog posts on the subject are available: https://purpleidea.com/tags/mgmtconfig/
