Topic: Using Puppet to Automate Amazon Deployments
Description: 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.
2pm - Speaker: Kenn Hussey of Cloudsmith
Topic: Geppetto - tooling for Puppet development
Description: 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.
We’ll review the current state of the art in tooling for working with modules, with a particular emphasis on Geppetto, a recently introduced “Puppet IDE” that simplifies the process of creating and editing manifests and modules. We’ll also demonstrate Geppetto's key features and also show how Geppetto supports module development, publishing and consumption in an integrated workflow.
