Welcome to the team! You were hired to help us automate our existing systems. Don’t worry, they’re all working reasonable well, each server has a meaningful name so you’ll know what it does, and our set-up procedures have been thoroughly documented in the wiki.

Perhaps you have walked into a similar situation or face one back at work today. Where do you start?! How do you know when you’re done?

Few of us are starting from scratch. Our systems are already in production, delivering business and customer value. But perhaps these systems were built and are being managed by hand. This talk will provide practical advice for an approach to automating these systems.

Start by figuring out what you have, decide where to start, and get to work. Oh, but don’t bring down production! The last person who did that is no longer on the team.
