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.
