Introduction to Puppet 4 Configuration and Administration
This Introduction to Puppet 4 Configuration and Administration training course teaches attendees how to use Puppet, a powerful enterprise system management and configuration tool. The class covers fundamentals all the way through extending Puppet with Reporting, MCollective, and Hiera. Substantial time and attention is dedicated to learning how to write and apply resource definitions, the key feature of Puppet that allows an administrator to synchronize environments easily and uniformly.

For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor's screen simultaneously with working on their own.
