European Space Agency
We visited the European Space Agency at its headquarters in Madrid in February 2018, which is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
The systems management team, in itself multidisciplinary and with a wide range of responsibilities, was venturing into the management of configurations with Puppet. To accelerate adoption and ensure a level of knowledge, we develop a tailor-made course based on our experience, giving courses at all levels of experience.
The course consisted of 3 full and intensive days, with participants from Spain, Poland and the Netherlands. An introduction to Puppet was made during the first day, reviewing key concepts and good practices. The second day consisted of an overview of Puppet's infrastructure, design patterns and anti-patterns, with practical exercises.
To finish the course, advanced uses of Puppet's language and infrastructure were discussed, closing the day with a group exercise that involved the knowledge acquired and collaboration among the participants.
