Building a Finite State Machine in Puppet

If you're a computer scientist you're familiar with finite state machines (FSM), basically logic circuits. If you're in operations or DevOps, you're probably familiar with Puppet--the open source configuration management tool.

One blogger, going by just "James," hacked together a finite state machine with Puppet to model thermodynamic phase transitions. This is an exercise in building state transitions into Puppet modules, and as James points out, "Computer science professionals might not approve of the purity level, but they will hopefully appreciate the hack value."
