Subject:	How Puppet fits into your existing infrastructure.

Presenter:	Garrett Honeycutt

Discussing best practices with Puppet and technologies around 
configuration management such as software repositories, data storage, 
directory services, security, automated provisioning, and how to create 
disposable architecture.

Will also cover how to structure your version control system to deal 
with configuration management code and a simple methodology for 
deploying different revisions across different environments, such as 
Dev, QA, Staging, Prod, etc.

While this talk focuses on Puppet integration, most of the material is 
tool agnostic and will be applicable to other configuration management 

Garrett Honeycutt has been hacking *nix based systems and spreading the 
merits of open source software for over ten years. He began using Puppet 
in 2007 while building out a national carrier grade VoIP system, where 
he wrote many Puppet modules and acted as release engineer for Puppet 
code. Previously he has worked on such things as building core internet 
infrastructure for an ISP and creating mobile media distribution 
platforms. Currently he works as a Professional Services Engineer for 
Puppet Labs where he teaches, consults, and presents around the world.

As always, there will be dinner sponsored by Silicon Mechanics. Check

The meeting will be at the Electrical Engineering building on the
