2:00pm to 3:30pm
This tutorial will start with the basics of Puppet, how Puppet defines a system. We will cover the language syntax and how to create manifests. We will delve into how code is organized into classes and modules. We will then use modules to define nodes through an abstraction known as roles and profiles. We will briefly introduce all the tools available to the puppet developer. We will introduce the Puppet Forge. This will be a fast paced introduction to all that Puppet has to offer.
Note: When I've done this in the past I've used live USB keys for attendees. I have also done Vagrant boxes for this and may opt to do that again. Either one will be about 4GB in size and I will bring some USB drives with the images on them.
Who should attend:
Anyone who is thinking about using Puppet or is just starting out and looking for a solid introduction.
Take back to work:
How all the parts of the Puppet ecosystem work. How to write manifests and some best practices for implementing Puppet in their shop.
