Managing Windows with Puppet
One of the more popular sessions from PuppetConf 2013 was James Sweeny's talk, "Managing Windows with Puppet."
James provides some pragmatic tips for how Windows can be managed effectively and easily with Puppet, and compares and contrasts the differences between managing Linux and Windows environments. He then goes into some of the specific approaches that are unique to Windows resources, as well as some of the weird Windows idiosyncrasies that will probably hurt you if you're not careful.
