The Salt project is already very powerful Python based DevOps platform that ships with almost 500 remote execution modules and just over 300 state modules, it has the means and the ability to support many different systems and environments, but that doesn’t mean that they all suit your needs perfectly. By extending Salt with your own modules or building enhancements into existing ones, you can bring the functionality that you need to increase your productivity. In this talk, we’ll look how easy it is to write a new remote execution module and then look at how we can use our remote execution module. Finally we’ll take a look at how to extend some of other subsystems of Salt such as engines and beacons.
