                       The Future of Puppet - What a
                  Model-Driven Infrastructure Means to You

Please join us on February 17th, 2010 for a special guest, Luke Kaines, the
founder of the Puppet Project.

This talk will have a general focus on the future of Puppet, and will
particularly delve into how Puppet's model of the world will be used to
drive new tools and capabilities.  While Puppet is obviously about
configuring your infrastructure, the fact that it uses declarative models
rather than merely relying on chunks of opaque code is critical to both how
we got here and where we go in the future.

This year will be the year of data for Puppet.  For example, its most
recent major release provided the means to address a host's compiled
configuration as a separate, manageable entity, meaning it can be stored,
controlled, and validated at will.  The next full release will have
granular event reporting, with correspondingly greater ability to correlate
configurations to the resulting changes.

Each successive release thereafter will further expose the data that lies
at the heart of a Puppet infrastructure.  This talk will discuss some of
the kinds of data we'll be bringing to the forefront of your Puppet
infrastructure, along with how you can take advantage of it and how it will
change your view of the world.
