The Mechanical Sys Admin…Go forth & build something awesome

For the last year, Shadow-Soft professional services have been engaged with a customer familiar with UNIX but with little to no experience using or administering Linux in general. Using Puppet and a bit of effort and expertise, we have built the ability for system administration to be done by “normal humans” and enabled our customer to “not have to buy more employees”.  This recent talk given at the Puppet Camp DC details how to design Puppet based system automations appropriate to a novice user level and engineer the supporting automation for business success.
