You know that there is great stuff readily available in the Puppet Forge, but how do you integrate that into your own environment? How can you distinguish between beauty and the plentiful examples of how NOT to build a module? You’ve probably heard about roles and profiles, but where to put all the tidbits that you need to make Puppet work for you? I’ll show you how you can leverage the power of the Forge. Flexibility guaranteed with the help of our friends r10k, Hiera and wrappers for classes and types.
