learning quickly with Puppet,
This review is from: Pulling Strings with Puppet: Configuration Management Made Easy (FirstPress) (Paperback)
I just began using Puppet about 3 weeks ago to administer 20 systems. Although the online docs are good, it is always hit or miss. I found the book and ordered it immediately. I got it 2 days ago and spent all day going through it. I have already picked up more tips than I could have from all the online docs and examples - it is HUGELY worth the money just from that! One thing that I have learned, that is going to be a huge win - is the customization capabilities. We use ESM to manage/monitor security aspects of systems, and being able to write recipes with Puppet to match ESM security rules is going to be a huge plus for us.
Thanks for a great resource and I am hoping that as Puppet matures, that the 2nd Edition is not far off.
