2020-11-06: IAC Team Status Update
It was an interesting week for IAC team and we have exciting news for you.
Puppet 7 / Ruby 2.7 Certification
We are now entering the final stages of our Puppet 7 testing. With the Puppet 7 release imminent, and our Cloud CI project nearing completion, we are hoping to have Puppet 7 acceptance tests rolled out on it very soon. Before that, we are working to get unit tests running on TravisCI with Ruby 2.7.
Disha’s 10th Week: PTO and First Ticket Completed
A message from our intern:
Hi all, This week I haven’t got a lot to say…. I got my first PTO in Puppet at the start of the week from Monday to Wednesday. I returned to work on Thursday morning and started doing litmus acceptance testing on the tomcat module which was the first ticket assigned to me before going on PTO. I am delighted to have it completed! I would also like to say thanks to my mentor Ciaran for a 1:1 session on how to do effective debugging of errors. Thanks Ciaran for such a useful session. That’s all for this week. Have a good weekend everyone!
Cloud CI update
As we move closer to ironing out some of the bugs we have set our targets on a couple of windows modules for the initial porting to use Cloud resources in their acceptance testing. We have started with setting up a PR for puppetlabs-acl and as soon as we are happy with the workflow puppetlabs-iis and registry will follow. For a quick glance at a demo on how this setup will help in the future please take a look at “The new Puppet Developer Experience: it’s all about you” presented at the Puppetize Digital 2020 event by Ben Ford.
