Puppet Practitoner Training (3 Days)
In Puppet Practitioner students will learn why they should manage their Puppet infrastructure the right way.
Note: This is an advanced level course.
Students will learn multiple ways to accomplish tasks in Puppet and how to choose which is most appropriate for a given situation. Students will design and build modules, and extend modules from the Forge. Students will also learn best practices for implementing Roles & Profiles in their infrastructure.
After completing this course students will show a mastery of the Puppet DSL and common design patterns providing them with solutions for problem solving techniques and a better understanding of Puppet Best Practices.
In this course, we expect students to have a reasonable level of Puppet experience and are looking to expand their knowledge. Students should have completed Puppet Fundamentals or have the equivalent hands-on experience with Puppet--at least six months to a year.
The course is designed for senior system administrators and DevOps professionals with a solid understanding of configuration management strategies.
