Workshop: Doing the Refactor Dance - Making Your Puppet Modules More Modular - Gary Larizza, Puppet Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The saying "Hell is other people's code" is second only to "Hell is your OLD code." As a sysadmin, the Puppet code you FIRST wrote (the code that is still probably running in production) is most likely a stringy nightmare of variables and pain.

By the time you leave, you should have a plan for unwinding the tangled web that past-you had Puppetized (or you'll leave with REALLY GOOD stories)!
