Killer R10K Workflow

Phil Zimmerman will give us a preview of his PuppetConf 2104 talk.  He needs us to give him feedback so he can hone his presentation prior to the September conference.


How do you harness the power of 10,000 killer robots and make them do your bidding? You are using or thinking about using the awesomeness of r10k. How do you automate the automator in your workflow? At Time Warner Cable, we have created a process for doing just that. Focus on writing great modules and don’t worry about how your changes will get deployed to your puppet master(s), just know they will be there. Come learn about a sane puppet dev and release automation process. 

The following will be covered: 
- Overview of Iterative Development Flow Using R10K 
- Automated Puppetfile Manipulation 
- GitHub Post-Receive Hook (where the magic happens) 
- Capistrano Integration 
- Release Deployment Workflow (versioning, git, jenkins and r10k) 
- Jenkins Build and Release Process  
- Puppet Deployment Process - Ship It!


Parking on 18th and Curtis or anywhere downtown.

If you want to present a topic for the next meeting please feel free to email the group organizers. Anything related to config automation, continuous integration / deployment, or any devops related topics are welcome. General agenda is: 
- Social and Food 
- Meet and Greet 
- Presentation 
- Q&A and Beverages

    For those that were at the last meetup, here is the link for the post-receive code. It could be more awesome and needs more tests, but here it is. More documentation forthcoming as well
