Description: Aaron and Nick Weaver talk with Luke Kanies (@puppetmasterd), Founder / CEO @ Puppet Labs, about the evolution of DevOps, the growth of the Puppet community and shifts in how IT operations are being managed.

Profile of Luke Kanies

Topic 1 - Highlights from the PuppetConf Opening Keynote:
  • Community, Community, Community
  • Buzz around the company reminds me of VMware in the early days
  • fail fast, move quickly, make mistakes, learn - Most big companies don’t do that
  • Puppet Certification
Topic 2 - Puppet is one of the tools that is often mentioned as being central to the DevOps movement. We are we with DevOps in the industry at this point? How well understood is it, where is it most widely used, and what are the next big hurdles to overcome? 

Topic 3 - Often times you’ll hear people say “Chef or Puppet” when talking about aspects of automation. Like most toolsets, people tend to have their favorites and various reasons why they prefer one vs. another.
(a) Why do you hear that people choose Puppet vs. other toolsets?

Questions from Twitter:
  1. “@mfdii: (Michael Ducy) did he really cuss out Mark Zuckerberg for going with @opscode chef?”
