Presented by:

Thomas Göttlicher currently works at SUSE on Machinery - a project about system management. From 2007 to 2013 he was a member of the YaST engineering team. Previously he was a UNIX and Linux administrator; his first Linux server was running S.u.S.E. Linux 5.2. He holds a degree in Computer Science from the University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg, Germany.

Alfred is a system administrator of a real world data center. He faces the reality of systems nobody knows about, people making mistakes and forgetting about best practices, or not riding the latest DevOps trend. SUSE has started an open source project to help Alfred to keep his sanity and fill the gaps current tools don't address yet. The project is Machinery ( and it is released for openSUSE as well as SUSE Linux Enterprise. The presentation will provide a deep dive into what Machinery can do for system administrators and how the community can benefit and contribute.
