Cockpit: the Server UI

It's no secret that Linux runs much of the Internet, as well as all sorts of infrastructure and servers. In large part that's due to our community, and the great projects we've worked on together.

Where we've fallen short, is making these technologies accessible. Non-expert administrators often don't know where to start to make use of the powerful stuff we've put together. This ends up preventing further use of Linux.

Enter Cockpit. It aims to be a lightweight, installed out of the box, interface for performing basic monitoring, configuration, and installation on Linux servers.

Perfect for bringing new sysadmins to Linux, but we also aim to make repetitive tasks work well for experts, and respect and integrate well with other configuration tools out there, including the terminal.

In the talk we'll talk about why the Cockpit project was started, how Cockpit works, including its networking and multi-server aspects, and how you can get involved, try it out. We'll have a demo to show you were things are at, and some discussion of where we're headed.
