LCFG Users Meeting - "Using LCFG - Today and Beyond" - Friday 28th November 2008


Sponsored by the ITPF, this event showcases examples of using LCFG in different parts of the University and provides an opportunity for existing and future users to foster a community spirit.

From the LCFG website ... "LCFG is a system for automatically installing and managing the configuration of large numbers of Unix systems. It is particularly suitable for sites with very diverse and rapidly changing configurations."

Anyone who is interested in hearing how LCFG is being used across the University today, is considering taking the plunge into using it, or would like to meet other deployers are encouraged to attend.

The slides for all the talks are now available - http://www.lcfg.org/doc/UsersDay2008/
