NSW Chapter Meeting
Brett Gray is currently PuppetLabs' only Australian based employee; he's spent over a decade with the RAN, followed by stints at DFAT, the AFP and brews beer on the side as time permits.
Brett will be giving us a run down of Puppet, the awesome infrastructure automation software, and why you'd want to use it. He'll cover how to program Puppet to live-manage your Linux/Unix and Windows systems, it's inbuilt reporting components, node classification via Hiera and PuppetDB.
We'll also have a demonstration and the traditional lively Q&A session afterwards.
Food and drinks are provided courtesy of Google Australia, our generous host for this meeting. Please be on time to assist the smooth running of this event.
