Test Driven Puppet Development by Matt House
Thursday 20th September 6:00pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)
Puppet is a configuration management system written in Ruby. It smooths the experience of setting up and maintaining servers. But how do you test your server configuration without blowing away a machine? This month Matt will be taking us through test driven Puppet development, using rspec-puppet, cucumber, vagrant and more to ensure you have total confidence in your Puppet manifests.
This month we’ll also be holding a Ruby/Rails advice drop-in session before the main talk. If you are new to Ruby or Rails, or maybe you’re just having a problem with a particular bit of code, drop in at MadLab from 6pm for help and advice from some seasoned Ruby developers.
Anyone is welcome to come join us, whether you are a Ruby pro, a complete noob, or, shock horror, you don’t program ruby!
