We’ll cover Beaker’s location in the Puppet ecosystem. This includes questions such as “What does Beaker do?”, “Where does Beaker fit in my testing infrastructure?”, and “What does the infrastructure around Beaker look like?” We’ll also cover how easy it is to get started in Beaker, what improvements we’ve been making, and what we plan to do with it going forward.

Being a toolsmith at an ops tools company -- how can I affect more people than that?
