Go from no Puppet experience to writing your own Puppet modules in this quick start! We take beginners and those who have never learned Puppet before and jump right in by setting up a Puppet Server and agent node and creating an nginx module.

As we create this nginx module, we'll learn how to use resource types, provide operating system-specfic parameters, store data in various Hiera hierarchies, and learn some Puppet best practices.
