When I joined to Olindata as a junior MySQL DBA I only had a vague idea about how Puppet, this open-source configuration management tool works in reality. I never really worked with a system like that, so I have been asked if I can learn it with Puppet Learning VM, which you can download from the following link here. This post is about how to set it up and what challenges you might encounter in this journey.
We're excited to release OpsTheater 1.6 and with that release make the full code open source. We actually quietly released a few weeks back already, but life is busy and I didn't have time to write this blog post until today.
