This course serves as preparation for learners who seek to pass the 206 Puppet Professional certification exam offered by PuppetLabs. It focuses on Puppet 5.5/Puppet Enterprise 2018.1 Long-Term Support (LTS) and later releases. We will be learning from the ground up, starting with the installation process for Puppet Enterprise (PE), and then work through each component as we would when applying Puppet to an actual production environment. We will cover everything from basic module authoring to setting up multi-master environments that allow us to push code across massive infrastructures and manage our hosts with features, such as Code Manager, Bolt, and PuppetDB. Upon the completion of this course, learners will be able to tackle any DevOps assignments that must be orchestrated with Puppet or require configuration management.

About the author
With a background at a cloud hosting company, I started learning Linux and DevOps from the bottom up as a technical writer set out to document configuration management systems. Falling in love with Linux, DevOps and tech as a whole, I eventually took my ability to explain technical concepts to wide audiences to the training area, creating courses on Red Hat, SaltStack, HashiCorp, LXD, Docker, and more.
