What is Puppet? (for the curious and uninitiated)
Puppet is an open-source next-generation server automation tool. It is composed of a declarative language for expressing system configuration, a client and server for distributing it, and a library for realizing the configuration.

We meet in conference room A on the lower level of the Salt Lake Library. Head down the stairs, make a left turn. The conference room is directly under the foyer area (the area with all the shops on the 1st level) If you aren’t clear, ask the information desk.
Also, our meetings should be posted on the Electric Signs by the entrance to the library on the first floor.
