Puppet at Google

Jason Wright


Puppet at Google

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Sept 3, 2014, Wednesday 4:30pm.

By now we've all heard of Puppet, and presumably we've also heard of Google. Jason will be presenting an overview of how Puppet is used at Google, in particular within Google's Corporate Engineering team. 

He will explain how Google goes about scaling Puppet, including techniques such as load balancing with anycast networking.  This includes an explanation of some of the problems Google encountered using Puppet at a scale beyond which Puppet was originally designed. 

Jason will also talk about some of their plans for the future. (No spoilers here, I'm afraid.)


Join us afterwards at Bloom's Tavern where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. Bloom's Tavern is located at 208 E 58th St, between 2nd at 3rd. 


Speaker Bio:

Jason Wright: Jason is an SRE working for Google Corporate Engineering, providing internal services to Googlers. Currently focusing on Puppet and DNS, he has previously worked on the Goobuntu team and was tech lead for email before Gmail came along.

      Actually there is one small bike Room in LL2, but I am not sure whether it's available for you~

      yes there is a bike room only accessible with a card key, but was lucky the security guard allowed me to keep it in his office.

    Excellent presentation. It gave me an intuitive understanding of Puppet and a level of built-in comfort with Puppet - I've been looking for that feeling for a long time :) When I do something, I don't want to consciously think about it, I just want the reflexes to take over - the presentation brought me closer to that point :)
