War Story: Puppet in a Traditional Enterprise

This talk will discuss the implementation of puppet across 15000 servers in a very traditional enterprise organisation. This involved 20 teams of people new to puppet. On top of that 70% of servers were Windows, making this quite an interesting challenge. The talk will outline the experiences in onboarding puppet in this enterprise environment. Things that worked, things that didn't work and everything in between.
