Puppet Fundamentals Course (3 Days)
This training course replaces the former Puppet Master course. The class teaches students a best practice approach to managing their infrastructure using Puppet IT automation software, including:
- Modules and Classes
- Puppet Agent & Puppet Master
- Language and Templates
- Defined Resource Types
- Puppet Forge
- Troubleshooting & Best Practices
- Live Management
After completing this course, students will be able to deploy basic system configurations using best practices for Puppet in a Master-Client setup.
Target Audience (who should attend):
The target audience for this course includes newer members at an organization already using Puppet, or experienced sysadmins wanting to bring Puppet into their team as a new solution.
In order to complete the course successfully, attendees need to have at least the equivalent experience of a junior Unix/Linux administrator. For further details about what this entails, please refer to Puppet Labs Training: The Prerequisites.
Topics are covered over 3 days. Sessions will mix theory and practice, balancing 50% lecture with 50% hands-on exercises. (In order to perform the hands-on exercises, each student needs to bring a WiFi enabled laptop with VMware installed to participate in the labs, unless otherwise noted.)
