Welcome to Puppet Technical Training day!

In this technical training you will learn how you can easily automate ad-hoc infrastructure operations and application deployments with Puppet Bolt – and how to ensure continuous compliance in day-to-day operations with Puppet Enterprise.

Want to know more about Bolt & Enterprise? Take a look at “It’s time for next generation automation“, blog post by Robert Finn, Vice President, Puppet EMEA.

Who should attend?

Everyone interested in automation and configuration management is welcome! Also both existing Puppet Open Source and Puppet Enterprise users from beginners to advanced level will find this training useful.

Training format

An instructor-led class with both presentations and lots of hands-on labs. Attendees use their own laptops with either Windows, Linux or MacOS.

Training is free of charge, organized by Nordicmind & Puppet.


Bring your own laptop, in which you have the ability to install software. A basic understanding of configuration management practices is enough – prior experience with Puppet is not mandatory!
