Engage is a new open-source, Python-based platform for deploying and
managing applications, either on your own servers or in the public
cloud. It automates server provisioning, application installation,
configuration, and upgrades. The technology behind engage combines
ideas from Linux package managers, constraint solvers, and existing
deployment frameworks such as Puppet or Chef. In this talk, we will
look into the design of Engage, how to use Engage, and how to extend
it. The talk will conclude with a discussion on lessons learned,
including the use of domain specific languages, software evolution,
and testing strategy.

Engage is available under the Apache License at

Jeff is a co-founder of genForma, a startup building a Platform as a
Service offering on top of Engage.
