Puppet first emerged in 2005 and now, a decade later, is going strong. Many of the original concepts and principles have been proven out and evolved; much in the codebase and the ecosystem has changed. We'll take a tour through the evolution of Puppet, discuss the current state of the art, and talk about what the next ten years may bring.
After 16 years working as a systems/network administrator in the Bay Area, Eric relocated to Portland in 2012 to further develop his passion for awesome configuration management tools. When he's not grooming the backlog for Puppet, he's out enjoying Oregon's trails with his partner Jen, son Gunnar, and neurotic-yet-lovable pointer Indigo.
