How to clean up the DevOps dumping ground with Relay
Cloud teams are drowning in an increasing, unsustainable volume of external events: cloud events, git events, monitoring alerts, tickets, incidents, and others. In response, engineers manually perform a disparate set of actions across various cloud providers, container platforms, CI/CD tools, config mgmt tools, and hundreds of other APIs. To make this better, some developers try to create their one-off automation tools or integration hubs, usually per team or project. Eric Sorenson and Melissa Sussmann discuss Puppet’s event-driven automation, Relay, and how it helps clean up the “DevOps Dumping Ground” in your environmentLearn moreWe’re building the future of DevOps automation with Relay.

What's new with the Puppet VS Code Extension, anyway?
Puppet's developer experience has been through a lot of growing pains. Many of us learned Puppet before the PDK existed, when the state of the art was SSHing into a Puppet master, manually making a module's directory structure, and cracking open Vim to edit our manifests. Some of us still do that; old habits die hard. But the point is that the barrier to entry used to be really high, and it didn't have to be. James Pogran is a Puppet developer on a mission to change that and simplify the experience for practitioners of all levels. He's here to talk with us today about his work on the Puppet VS Code Extension.Learn moreInstall the Puppet VS Code Extension today!See more about the Puppet VS Code extensionGet started with the PDK today
