• Puppet vs. ansible
  • getting faster to results as puppet
  • no ruby, just python needed on remote (per default on every modern Linux distro anyway)
  • verbose mode => see how it works => sample
  • easy to install through homebrew, apt-get, etc.
  • complete list of tasks: https://gist.github.com/marktheunissen/2979474
  • events with handlers (restart, regenerate, etc.)
  • you only need to know and use yml (and shell scripts for complex and custom tasks)
  • even suited for deployment (I don’t do that)
  • if you don’t do it now: use infrastructure as code
  • integrates nicely with Vagrant through as a provisioner (link)
  • show sample with templates
