This webcast explores the process for upgrading and improving an existing Puppet installation, with a focus on fast incremental improvements and stability.

Puppet infrastructure tends to grow organically, often producing code that is difficult to maintain and expensive to improve. We explore the general tools and process for implementing best practices in an existing site without the risk of a ground-up reimplementation.
