Even with smaller companies, I don’t think it hurts to look into automating more server admin and web development processes.  Puppet is one of those DevOps tools that keeps popping up.   I’m definitely going to learn more about it so here’s a link to a free e-book, “Essential Steps to Mapping Your DevOps Journey” on Puppet Labs’ website.  I figured that was a good place to start.

“Managing infrastructure as code” is a recurring theme on their website and materials that makes a lot of sense.  I look forward to learning more about Puppet!
