Puppet Basics Course Overview

Puppet Basics Course Overview

The Puppet Basics course is an intricate puppet training course designed to equip learners with a comprehensive understanding of Puppet, the popular IT automation software. It delves into advanced Puppet Domain Specific Language (DSL) constructs, enabling participants to write elegant and efficient automation code. The course covers a variety of topics from using data structures and custom facts to optimize resource creation and node information retrieval, to mastering modularity and composability for effective module design.

Testing methodologies are explored to ensure reliable Puppet code, and orchestration automation is taught through MCollective. The course also addresses troubleshooting, the Roles & Profiles design pattern, file management, the Anchor Pattern, and the `contain()` function. Additionally, it encourages contributing to the Puppet Forge by creating reusable modules. With a focus on sharing functionality and inheritance between classes, this puppet training course is essential for IT professionals aiming to harness Puppet's full potential for scalable infrastructure management.
