This month PuppetNYC and NYLUG are joining forces for a great meeting.
We expect the meeting to potentially go on waitlist, so to keep things
simple we'll be consolidating all RSVPs here:
http://www.meetup.com/nylug-meetings/events/180097202/

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs.

When:
----------
Wednesday, Sept 17, 2014
6:30 PM

Where:
----------
Bloomberg
731 Lexington Ave, New York, NY

(Please enter on Lexington Ave. between 58th and 59th street. At the

-------------------------
Jason Wright
-on-
Puppet at Google

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will
need IDs. RSVP will open Sept 3, 2014, Wednesday 4:30pm.

By now we've all heard of Puppet, and presumably we've also heard of
Google. Jason will be presenting an overview of how Puppet is used at
Google, in particular within Google's Corporate Engineering team.

He will explain how Google goes about scaling Puppet, including
techniques such as load balancing with anycast networking. This
includes an explanation of some of the problems Google encountered
using Puppet at a scale beyond which Puppet was originally designed.

Jason will also talk about some of their plans for the future. (No
spoilers here, I'm afraid.)

Afterwards:
-----------------
Join us afterwards at Bloom's Tavern where we'll continue the
discussion over drinks and/or food. Bloom's Tavern is located at 208 E
58th St, between 2nd and 3rd.
