SoCal Python MeetUp

John Hickey spoke on behalf of our Python community at Verizon Digital, presented “Charming the Dell Lifecycle Controller with Python”. The Dell Lifecycle Controller provides a way to programmatically manage servers. An end user can perform BIOS configuration, firmware upgrades, and RAID configuration all through the Lifecycle Controller via a SOAP API. The goal of dractor is to present this API in a Python friendly manner to enable high level interaction with the Lifecycle Controller.
