Cody started his career in the world of higher education infrastructure management. A world full of complicated sets of software never meant to be consumed by the average end user. Keeping all these stacks of software in-line was only possible through automation. The longer he worked the more crucial he found Puppet in the success of day to day operations. He joined Puppet Labs in 2010 as one of the few world traveling Professional Service Engineers. He traveled to train, evangelize, and stand up customer infrastructure on the back of Puppet modules. Today he focuses on the building our internal Openstack footprint and fostering a growing Puppet Openstack community of partners and integrators.
