Puppet Fundamentals Course

In Puppet Fundamentals students will learn the right way to manage an infrastructure. You will learn foundational concepts and best practices for managing your infrastructure with Puppet Enterprise.Students will start by installing Puppet Enterprise, then learn Puppet best practices and use Puppet to write simple classes, and update and extend existing modules. Puppet Fundamentals is taught through a combination of lecture and relevant, real world, hands-on exercises.

Objectives Puppet Fundamentals Training

Students will be able to deploy basic system configurations using best practices for Puppet in a Master-Agent setup.

Intended Audience of Puppet Fundamental Course

Know the command line, such as Bash or PowerShell, and be familiar with operating system concepts such as services, packages and configuration files. If you’d like to work with the provided Training VM and you’d like an opportunity to refresh your Unix skills before logging in, you might work through the following material:

  • Unix tutorial for Beginners
  • Command Line Crash Course

Be familiar with a text editor. Puppet Labs trainers typically use Vim, but you may use any text editor you are comfortable with. The provided Training VM includes vim, emacs, and nano.

Prerequisites for Puppet Fundamental Certification

In this course, we expect students to have little to no experience with Puppet Enterprise (or Puppet Open Source) and are looking to build a foundation for future growth, experience, and knowledge.

Students should know the command line, such as Bash or PowerShell, and are familiar with operating system concepts such as services, packages and configuration files. Be familiar with a text editor. Puppet Labs trainers typically use Vim, but you may use any text editor you are comfortable with. The provided Training VM includes vim, emacs, and nano.

Students definitely need junior-level sysadmin skills. For example:

  • how to restart a service
  • what an entry in the hosts file means
  • what a hostname is
  • how to troubleshoot basic networking problems such as name lookups, DNS lookups, and basic connectivity

Be able to configure a virtual machine (either of VMware or VirtualBox) to use bridged or NAT networking.

If you’d like an opportunity to refresh your Unix skills before logging in, you might work through the following material:

  • Unix tutorial for Beginners
  • Command Line Crash Course
