Nervous about making big changes to your systems with Puppet?  Tom will present 4 techniques we use at Stack Exchange, Inc. that will increase your confidence in the changes you make using Puppet.
  • Infinite source code “undo” using Git
  • Automatic testing and deployment using TeamCity
  • Build a test environment on your laptop using Vagrant
  • Test changes in production safely using Puppet Environments and –noop
If the WiFi is working, Tom will make live changes to Stack Exchange, Inc’s infrastructure during the presentation.
