Puppet Camp Atlanta is only a few weeks away! If you’re in the Atlanta area or nearby region, this event is for you! Puppet Camps are local, 1-day events that feature a mix Puppet Labs engineers, local speakers, and unconference talks generated by the audience. We’d like to thank our Sponsor MomentumSI for helping make Puppet Camp Atlanta possible!
We hope you’ll join us for Puppet Camp Atlanta, the first of many new Puppet Camps sprouting up worldwide.
Check out the tentative schedule below—much of the afternoon will be devoted to unconference talks (ie, you can lead the charge on a topic you care about).
| Kelsey Hightower
| There’s a Module for That!
An in depth look at the Puppet Forge and it’s companion, the Puppet Module Tool. During this talk a Puppet module will be created from the ground up and released on the Puppet Forge.
| Gary Larizza*
| Examples for Separating Data from Puppet Code
One of the first, and biggest, hurdles that Puppet users encounter is ‘How do I make this Puppet code work across all my environments?’ There are several ways to solve this problem, and Gary will give examples of many of the popular methods. He’ll also introduce you to Hiera: the next-generation data lookup system that will be bundled with the next major release of Puppet.
| Clint Savage
| Centralized Authentication with Puppet, LDAP and Linux
This talks about using Active Directory or LDAP as the authentication source, using puppet to update when a new user is added and setting up proper authentications with pam, sssd, ssh and /etc/security/access.conf, among other considerations.

| Using Puppet to Automate Amazon Deployments
As Amazon continues to grow market share in the public cloud, users are deploying more sophisticated multi-tiered applications. This presents a DevOps challenge related to consistent provisioning, configuring, scaling and locking down resources. This session will discuss the use of Puppet and CloudFormation to automate cloud deployments and system upgrades.
| Kenn Hussey
| Geppetto – tooling for Puppet development
This talk will provide both an overview of current approaches to developing Puppet modules, as well as a look forward toward an expanded vision that includes publishing and consuming modules with the Puppet Forge.
