  • Critical Considerations for Continuous Delivery: Automating Application Delivery
    Critical Considerations for Continuous Delivery: Automating Application Delivery Rahul Singh-VP of Engineering, Michael Olson-Sr. Product Marketing Manager Recorded: May 15 2018 54 mins
    While there are plenty of resources and tools to begin tinkering with automated software delivery and application release automation, what makes the difference between delivering software infrequently vs. on-demand? Watch our on-demand webinar to learn three key considerations you should make if you’re serious about continuous delivery.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

    - (Finally) moving to an agile practice: More than an industry buzzword, agile development practices are crucial to unlocking the full potential of continuous delivery while offering a means to benchmark progress.
    - How to get full control and visibility into the software delivery pipeline: When teams spend less time manually pushing software out, they can assess and address process pains and obstacles.
    - Why standardizing your software delivery process and toolchain is critical: Silos exist across the software delivery lifecycle because of the sheer number of different tools available: it’s time to standardize these to break down the silos.
  • Discover and take action on any resource in your IT estate
    Discover and take action on any resource in your IT estate John Tonello-Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Puppet, Carl Caum-Product Marketing Engineer at Puppet Recorded: May 15 2018 44 mins
    Whether you’re grappling with brownfield environments that aren’t under management, infrastructure inherited from various acquisitions or shadow IT, one of the earliest and most significant challenges to achieving pervasive automation is not knowing what you have. Simply put, you can’t automate what you don’t know exists. This is why discovery of your infrastructure resources is step zero in bringing automation to any organization.

    Puppet Discovery solves this problem by giving you an accurate, real-time picture of your IT inventory so you always know what’s running, and can prioritize what to automate.

    Join Carl Caum, Engineering Product Manager for Puppet Discovery, and John Tonello, Sr. Technical Marketing Manager, for a closer look at Puppet Discovery’s capabilities:

    - See everything you have running on your servers, VMs and containers in an intuitive dashboard, so you know what’s under management, and what’s not.
    - Unlike clunky CMDB tools and static spreadsheets, Puppet Discovery maintains a dynamic and actionable inventory, making it easy to see exactly what software, services and operating systems are running.
    - More than just a resource inventory, Puppet Discovery provides deep insights about infrastructure, bridging the gap between resource discovery and automation.
    - Unlike any other solution, Puppet Discovery allows you to take action on what you find, including restarting and stopping services and installing the Puppet agent

  • Automation for the Modern Enterprise
    Automation for the Modern Enterprise Alanna Brown, Director of Product Marketing. Michael Olson,Sr. Product Marketing Manager and Abir Majumdar,Solutions Engineer Recorded: Apr 25 2018 53 mins
    As we enter a new age of automation — where every company needs to be able to deliver better software, faster — our goal is to provide the tools you need to iterate faster, ship sooner and deliver more customer value.

    We recently announced brand new products, Puppet Tasks™ and Puppet Discovery™, to give you greater control and end-to-end visibility over your software delivery.

    Listen in as Eric Sorenson, Director of Product Management, and Mike Smith, Sales Engineer cover an in-depth look at what’s new:

    • Puppet Discovery is a new offering that lets you see everything you have in real time across your on-premises, cloud and container infrastructure, and know what you need to automate next.

    • Puppet Tasks, a new family of offerings that encompass both Puppet Bolt™and Puppet Enterprise Task Management, makes it simple to automate ad-hoc tasks, deploy one-off changes, and execute sequenced actions in an imperative way.

    • With Puppet Pipelines, we’re uniting the entire software delivery lifecycle, to bring you a platform built for the enterprise, that integrates with a wide variety of tools and helps you avoid vendor lock-in.
  • Critical Considerations for Delivering Container Applications at Scale
    Critical Considerations for Delivering Container Applications at Scale Scott Coulton, Principal Software Engineer and Mike Smith, Solutions Engineer Recorded: Apr 17 2018 47 mins
    With plenty of resources and tools available for containerizing applications, what makes the difference between success and failure when modernizing them? Join us to learn more about the key considerations you should make if you’re serious about adopting containers and moving to a continuous delivery model.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

    • How to get full control and visibility into your delivery pipeline for containers: As teams learn to spend less time manually pushing software deployments, they can identify and address process pains and obstacles faster.

    • Why standardizing your software delivery process and toolchain is critical: Managing container based and traditional applications with separate tools doesn’t scale, and creates disjointed silos that a single tool can eliminate.

  • A Simple Plan for a Motivated & Engaged Development Team
    A Simple Plan for a Motivated & Engaged Development Team Rick Tywoniak, Sr. Director, Cisco Recorded: Jan 18 2018 45 mins
    Every manager wants to lead a team that is engaged and motivated, but not every manager knows how to create the environment that a happy dev team needs. Developers are lifelong self-learners, easily frustrated when stuck in a role with no opportunity to learn new technologies and broaden their skill set. Leveraging automation and tools within a DevOps culture is one way to help free up time for us to focus on work that is more interesting and also allow us to continue to build our skill set.

    In this session, Rick Tywoniak will share his own experience as a developer and now a team leader, providing insight into how you can help your manager better understand what you need in order to stay motivated, engaged and happy.

  • The Dr. Seuss Guide to Code Craftsmanship
    The Dr. Seuss Guide to Code Craftsmanship Emily Freeman, Application Engineer, Kickbox Recorded: Jan 18 2018 33 mins
    When you think of Dr. Seuss, writing code probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But if you dig deeper, you’ll notice there’s a gem hidden in all his children’s rhymes. You see, Dr. Seuss would have made an excellent engineer. Because great code isn’t about choosing the perfect method name or building out 95% test coverage. All that is great, but it doesn’t make great code. YOU DO.

    This talk will focus on common pitfalls along the development lifecycle and distill Dr. Seuss’s excellent advice into concise steps developers can take before they write a single line of code.
  • Beyond RSpec: Innovative Strategies for Confident CI
    Beyond RSpec: Innovative Strategies for Confident CI Kevin Paulisse, Site Reliability Engineer, GitHub Recorded: Jan 18 2018 45 mins
    Continuous Integration (CI) testing provides instant feedback as you develop Puppet code. While it’s great that your rspec-puppet and beaker tests pass using fixtures and stubs, you can get a false sense of security from unanticipated edge cases, unrealistic assumptions, or the lack of complete coverage. You may be tempted to address these limitations by writing even more tests, but that would only exacerbate your frustration. Instead, you could use some alternate techniques to make your CI pipeline predict real-world behavior more accurately, and thereby gain confidence in your test results.

    In this session, we will explore some less traditional yet more powerful techniques for automated testing of Puppet code, and will explore how GitHub scaled these strategies to test hundreds of unique combinations while keeping build times reasonable. You will leave this session with fresh ideas to improve your CI pipeline, which will lead to confident and reliable deployments.
