Puppet for Windows Training

Puppet for Windows training has a focus on Puppet syntax basics, way of working (code development, versioning, automation) and module development strategies.

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 this is only slowly beginning to establish itself. In addition, the Puppet Community offers far fewer ready-made modules for Windows than for Linux, which are tailored to very basic tasks. As a result, Windows administrators have to write significantly more Puppet code themselves, but can access known Windows resources.

ATIX offers two different Puppet for Windows Trainings:

  • Fast Track: here, participants learn the Puppet basics, its Windows-specific use and gain first experiences with the tool.
  • Puppet for Windows Extended covers the contents of the Fast Track Training, but includes additional time for more detailed instructions, personal support, and answers to individual questions of the participants.
