Adrien is a software engineer at Puppet Labs. He started in IT Ops in 2005 and started writing code to automate everything, inadvertently becoming one of the earliest devops hipsters (he did devops before it was cool). He started at Puppet Labs in 2011 in the Operations team and helped build out the company infrastructure in the earlier days of the company. Adrien also helped provide customer support for the early versions of Puppet Enterprise and helped establish the initial dedicated customer support team. These days Adrien works on the client platform team to improve the core open source products, and in his free time he maintains r10k and other Puppet tools.
