Design Jam: When Modules Are Overkill

Design Jam: When Modules Are Overkill

Led by Eric Sorenson, J.D. Welch, and Melinda Campbell

Topic: Sure, Puppet is awesome, but we often have to do automation tasks that just don't make sense to write into a module and run every 30 minutes. If Puppet provided a tool to do more than enforcing configuration, how might it work?

What’s a design jam? If you can draw boxes, dots and lines, and you like thinking about new ways to solve problems, join us for a design jam. This is a hands-on workshop where we collaborate on the future of new Puppet tools.
