"The Setup: Managing an Army of Developer Laptops with Puppet" at PuppetConf '12, by Will Farrington, System Operations Engineer at GitHub, Inc. Learn more about Puppet: http://bit.ly/OUeBLk

Abstract: At GitHub, we've got an army of developers, designers, and just plain amazing people. They've all got laptops, of course, and for a long time they were all managed painstakingly by hand about a billion different ways. Hold on a second! I thought we were developers. We should know better! That's why John Barnette and I wrote "The Setup". The Setup is our infrastructure for managing every machine GitHubbers use. The purpose of this talk is to talk about how The Setup came to be, some of the choices we've made, and some of the amazing things yet to come with this project — including lots of sweet, sweet open source love.

Speaker Bio: Will is a developer and operations engineer. Will works on system operations at GitHub as part of the Operations team where he spends most of his time slinging Puppet to manage GitHub's extensive production environment. He is passionate about web operations and configuration management.
