What is Puppet HackDay Delhi?

 Puppet HackDay Delhi is barcamp-style event centered around systems automation, with a focus on Puppet. It will be a mix of talks and practical training. While the focus is Puppet, the event is open to all, and we're keen to include practitioners of cfengine, chef, etc.

This event is open to anyone who is interested in systems automation. Comfort with Linux/Unix will be necessary for participation in the practical training and competition.


10:00 AM: Coffee!

10:30 AM:"The Business Case for Automation" by Jonathan Boutelle, CTO of SlideShare

10:45 AM: "How Puppet Can Change Your Life" by Julie Tsai, Operations Lead for SlideShare

11 AM: "Puppet: A Model-Driven Infrastructure" by Luke Kanies, CEO / founder of Reductive Labs, and Inventor of Puppet.

12PM -2 PM: Interactive Exercise in creating a simple puppet script (bring a laptop, we will provide servers and guidance)

2PM: Lunch! //someplace nice ... we'll go out for lunch


6:30 PM: Judging of the competition. 

Why You Should Come To This:

You've been building a lot of web app servers by hand over and over, thinking 'There has to be a better way….'

Or, you've been wrangling with an infrastructure with 3 different OS's, multiple competing business units who all want you to  build machines their way, yet scale twice as fast with fewer sysadmins….

Or, you've just been needing to secure your systems in spec any way you can, challenged by a diverse ecology of users and jobs that will always be growing more complex….

The day's goals are:

  •  to give newcomers the opportunity to learn Puppet in a collaborative environment (with a two-hour guided exercise on EC2 machines that we will provide)
  •  to apply that knowledge in a 4-hour competition immediately following the exercise using Puppet
  • develop the community of like-minded operations professionals focused on furthering the promise of systems automation
