Puppet Best Practices: Design Patterns For Main...
If you maintain or plan to build Puppet infrastructure, this practical guide will take you a critical step further with best practices for managing the task successfully. Authors Chris Barbour and Jo Rhett present best-in-class design patterns for deploying Puppet environments and discuss the impact of each. The conceptual designs and implementation patterns in this book will help you create solutions that are easy to extend, maintain, and support.

In Puppet Practitioner students will learn why they should manage their Puppet infrastructure the right way. Students will learn multiple ways to accomplish tasks in Puppet. They will learn to choose which is most appropriate for a given situation. They will design and build modules, and extend modules from the Forge. And they will also learn best practices for implementing Roles & Profiles in their infrastructure.
This document introduces some patterns and practices for creating apps that areresilient and scalable, two essential goals of many modern architectureexercises. A well-designed app scales up and down as demand increases anddecreases, and is resilient enough to withstand service disruptions. Buildingand operating apps that meet these requirements requires careful planning anddesign.
The remainder of this document defines patterns and practices to help you buildresilient and scalable apps. These patterns touch all parts of your applifecycle, including your infrastructure design, app architecture, storagechoices, deployment processes, and organizational culture.
If you design your app as a set of loosely coupled, independent services, youcan increase your app's flexibility. If you adopt a loosely coupled design,it lets your services be independently released and deployed. In addition tomany other benefits, this approach enables those services to use differenttech stacks and to be managed by different teams. This loosely coupled approachis the key theme of architecture patterns like microservices and SOA.
By manipulating simple configuration files, a DevOps team can use application development best practices, such as version control, testing, small deployments, and design patterns. In short, this means code can be written to provision and manage an infrastructure as well as automate processes.
Extron is looking for a DevOps Engineer as a member of a growing and highly skilled software design and engineering team. Alongside software development, the DevOps Engineer will introduce, promote, and evolve software engineering excellence based on industry standards and best practices and personal experience.
The language C++ supports multiple programming paradigms and is often the first choice for applications where performance matters. It is widely being used by scientific communities including high energy physics. The course covers basic software design patterns, simple best practice rules, examples from the Standard Template Library, and selected topics from object oriented and generic programming. The goal is to help scientists to efficiently use C++ in order to improve the quality and to ease the maintenance of their software. Participants are required to have basic knowledge of C++ and the concepts of object oriented programming.

Automated testing is hard but necessary. A fully automated testing system requires serious investment and attention to be successful. LMAX has been committed this approach since its inception 6 years ago and learnt many hard lessons along the way. We will share the highlights our experience of testing a large and complex system including; the different types of testing that we apply, design patterns to write robust tests, tools (some open source) built to support the process and a few war stories.
Even for this family, however, dedication to traditional practice has taken a back seat to new obligations of year-round, full-time jobs and further education. In the past the family supplemented their performing income with agricultural work during the off-season. Today they farm only to support family needs. Ramachandran has taken the unusual risk of devoting himself full time to puppetry, promoting his art and taking it in new directions outside the seasonal performance schedule. The younger family members have occupations integrated into modern Indian life, which do not keep to seasonal patterns. Rajitha has a job at a bank and in July 2013 was training for a managerial position. Her brother, Rajeev, teaches computers at a local school. These other commitments make it difficult for them to learn and practice the tradition in the same way their father and grandfather did, especially in terms of spending the time required to learn the many text verses by heart.

Krista Leraas is co-owner of Harvest Moon Backyard Farmers where she designs and maintains sustainable food landscapes. She is also adjunct faculty in the Sustainable Design Program at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. For over a decade, she has dedicated her work to the emerging field of sustainability, including organic farming, nonprofit programming and even co-writing and performing a puppet play about sustainable agriculture. Krista co-founded the Living Green Expo, an annual sustainable resource event held in St. Paul, and Backyard Harvest, a nonprofit backyard farming and permaculture program. She holds a graduate degree in Culture, Ecology and Sustainable Community from New College of California and is a Certified Permaculture Designer. 041b061a72
