    herein is subject to change without notice. Our Pipeline 1.  Individual Salt Formula development 2.  Personal multi-node, package based OpenStack environment on your workstation for dev & validation 3.  Go public – push to gerrit for review & automated testing 4.  Pull in to the deploy-kit 5.  deploy-kit tooling kicks in & builds deploy artefacts 6.  Auto deploy to ephemeral public cloud test environment 7.  Deploy to physical staging environment 8.  Ready for production

Validating & Approving a change •  gerrit - defacto web based open source code review system •  submit changes (a patch set) for review by your peers.. •  ..and for testing by Jenkins •  Jenkins & Gerrit Trigger •  Gerrit plugins allow certain jobs to be triggered on patch-set events (create, merge etc) •  results of these jobs are then recorded in gerrit •  test-kitchen •  test harness to execute your configuration management code in isolation (i.e. fresh VMs) •  providers (vagrant, LXC, openstack, gce, aws etc) •  provisioners (Chef, Salt, Puppet) •  testing frameworks (Bats, RSpec, serverspec etc) •  can be used interactively in your dev environment as well as in validation jobs
