Hi everyone! We are happy to invite you to the March meeting, at Red Hat Annex downtown in Raleigh. Mauricio Teixeira will be presenting about Red Hat's puppet infrastructure.
Red Hat has been using Puppet as the config manager for many years, and is currently reviewing the infrastructure to simplify and streamline. We will take a look at how it is set up today, including the disaster recover environment, and how it's going to look in the near future.
Mauricio Teixeira is a Principal Systems Administrator on the IT Compute team, which is part of the larger IT Infrastructure group that takes care of all compute environments at Red Hat (on-prem and cloud). He's been working with Puppet for at least 7 years, and has been trying to justify why we should keep it, even in face of the Ansible acquisition.
We will also have a free book raffle of A Seat at the Table: IT Leadership in the Age of Agility ( https://itrevolution.com/book/seat-at-the-table/ )
We understand it might be difficult to so we soft-start at 6:30pm then really begin at 7pm.
6:30pm: Arrive, socialize, Snacks & drinks, Pizza and Beer
7:00pm: Introductions & announcements, news bits

The Wilmington Street entrance is most easily accessed by those arriving from the south. The S Blount Street entrance is part of the very same deck and is most easily accessed by those arriving from the north. There is no parking deck entrance on E Davie Street.
