The talk seeks to apply the lessons from Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Design, otherwise known as the "Gang of Four" book. The Design Patterns book is more than just a collection of elegant solutions to common problems, it provides a vocabulary and framework for analyzing those problems. Discussing and applying design patterns helps shift the focus from the immediate problem to design.
As the Puppet community converged on an idea of what "good" code looks like, Puppet design patterns began to emerge and design became more important. With more and more complex software being modeled in Puppet, those design patterns are more relevant than ever before. As the Puppet language takes on more general purpose and orchestration features, the need for good design patterns only grows with every release. This talk will cover some of those design patterns and the problems that they solve.
This session will stress the importance of design thinking; what design patterns are, when they're important, and when they're not. Attendees will be exposed to a collection of patterns that they can put to use immediately in their own code. The goal is to enable them to think more critically about designing Puppet code.
