Sometimes big challenges need to be tested and solved for at a much smaller scale. In this case, it’s the 1:87 model train scale with an interesting experiment coming out of Puppet.  Learn more about a new way to bring people together and automate with Bolt.

On this episode, Engineers Cas, Ken, Jacob, and Managing Editor Andrew chat about “bolting” remote task orchestration and automation onto a HO-scale model train set. The vision: sending Bolt plans to operate a model train at Puppet’s Portland headquarters.

Hear how this cross-functional team solves for the automation of remote devices, navigating network security requirements, possibly provisioning containers, and (most importantly) building a fun project that brings people together.
