Make system administration boring again
APIs strive to make programmer's jobs easier by keeping stability. Less attention is perhaps being paid to stability of system configuration, where interfaces include configuration file formats and various utilities. Ansible is a great tool for system management, but keeping Ansible playbooks across major upgrades can be challenging due to those interface differences. Come to learn how we are solving this problem using standardized Ansible roles - Linux System Roles.

Attendees will gain a practical understanding of how to use Linux System Roles with Ansible to configure their Fedora, RHEL or CentOS systems consistently across multiple releases. The audience is assumed to have a basic understanding of Ansible and experience with Linux (preferably Fedora-derived) system administration.

Red Hat CoreOS and OpenShift v4
This is a follow-up to a Devconf.us talk: https://devconfus2018.sched.com/event/FNMU/container-linux-and-rhel-the-road-ahead

In this talk, we’ll look at how the DNA of Container Linux, Atomic Host, and RHEL are merging together to provide automated operating system management for OpenShift v4. Specific focus areas are Ignition, “oscontainers” (ostree-in-container), and how the machine configuration operator ties these together.

We'll demonstrate how this provides operators with automated OS updates that are tightly integrated with the Kubernetes/OpenShift experience.

Portable Services Are Ready To Use
Portable Services bring certain aspects of containers to classic systemd service management. With systemd v239 Portable Services are for the first time complete and ready for users to take advantage of. In this talk we'll have a look on the underlying technical concepts, how things fit together and what the precise limitations and benefits are. We'll discuss why you should (or shouldn't) care about Portable Services, and what's next for them.

Auto-maintain your Package
Fedora has a specific aim, to have patches and development go upstream to their respective projects. This has been on each maintainer to do. We want to make that simple, even trivial … by using Git as God^H^H^HLinus intended.

There are many packages which use source git for development, rather than dist-git: systemd, cockpit, ostree, the RHEL kernel and more. The spec files live in the project’s source git history, often pushed upstream.

We are now working on a system to make this easily available to everyone: work with code, not tarballs and patches. We’ll show you a prototype that can easily turn on auto-maintenance of your package in dist-git, even rawhide. Have your package track upstream work automatically, when it passes tests to check that it works with the rest of Fedora.

You should switch to Python 3 (two years ago)
Python 3 exists for more than 10 years and during this time all your reasons to use Python 2 disappeared. In this talk, I'll show you advantages of Python 3, reasons why you really should switch (if a list of advantages won't be enough) and also how to do it in the most conservative way. Dual support for your old Debian server included.

standardize complex IT with ansible i.e. SAP HANA
This session describes how to design, build and automate IT environments with ansible roles following ITIL principles. It will be demonstrated how ansible can be used to setup a dev,QA and prod environment with SAP HANA as an example application. You will learn some best practises how to design your ansible roles to properly modularize your IT.
