Puppet for Windows Training

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the training courses will take place online.

Description

For Windows administrators, the introduction to configuration management with Puppet is somewhat different than for Linux administrators. Shell commands and scripts are the means of choice under Linux from the beginning, under Windows it is only slowly establishing itself. In addition, the Puppet Community offers far fewer ready-made modules for Windows than for Linux, which are also tailored to very basic tasks. As a result, Windows administrators have to write significantly more puppet code themselves, but can access known Windows resources.

The training “Puppet for Windows” focuses on the basics of Puppet syntax, working methods (code development, versioning, automation) and module development strategies.

Puppet for Windows – Fast Track

In our Puppet training for Windows administrators, participants learn the basics of the configuration management tool Puppet, try out working with it under Windows and experience the special features of its use under Windows.

Puppet for Windows – Extended

In our Puppet for Windows Extended training, the participants are taught the contents of the Fast Track training, however, with the help of the additional day, the contents can be dealt with in more detail and the (additional) questions and problems of the participants can be addressed more individually and in more detail.
