For those who don't know, Andrew Shafer works full time on the Open
Source system management framework, Puppet. He brings with him a
background in computational science, embedded Linux development, web
frameworks and Agile methods. Andrew has been an Open Source user and
advocate since the late 90s. He was a speaker at the 2008 Utah Open
Source Conference.

Puppet is a configuration management tool written in Ruby. Combined with
cobbler, puppet can be used for fully automating installs of Unix-like
systems remotely without ever sitting at the physical machine. It's a
perfect solution for Ubuntu and Debian, where preseed sucks. But, Puppet
is simpler than that. Basically, it's just a system put into place for
automating system administration tasks.

This meeting will be well worth your while to attend. See you there!
