John Blass of the Research Computing Tech. Team, in collaboration with John Roberts at Argonne National Laboratory, published their work in modernizing stateless provisioning of cluster computing systems at the SC18 conference. By applying standard software-development practices of continuous integration, automated testing, and continuous delivery, the processes they have developed will encourage more consistent and stable development of compute environments and software stacks.

You can read more about their work in the SC18 proceedings.
