Organizing your code into modules and classes will make it more usable and maintainable, which will make you more employable. In this course, Puppet 4: Working with Modules and Classes, you'll learn how to organize your code better than ever before. First, you'll learn to transform an NTP manifest into a more usable application, in the form of a module containing classes and defined types. You'll also learn how to create code once and reuse it. Finally, you'll discover how to validate input to parameterized classes. By the end of this course, you'll know how to refactor monolithic, flat Puppet manifests into streamlined modules.
