Hey, automatically building a VLAN or applying some basic configuration to an interface on a command line driven network device is a neat trick but it's time to get real. Let’s start talking about how to tactically transform today’s mostly command and control driven, CLI interfaces into a more agile-focused, integrated solution. We will touch on the evolution of network support in Puppet and take a look at how it all comes together through the application of DevOps principles. But pretty pictures only go so far, so we will plan to spend most of our time on a live system looking at real use cases in operation today.
