AWS OpsWorks is an application management service that makes it easy to run and automate applications on EC2. This talk will guide you how to leverage Puppet in OpsWorks. We will learn how to hook Puppet into the OpsWorks lifecycle framework so that Puppet can be used to dynamically configure EC2 instances while OpsWorks takes care of auto-healing and auto-scaling. We will walk through customizing OpsWorks to run your own Puppet manifests and how to do deployments with Puppet.
