2023-07-21: Content & Tooling Team Status Update
We trust you’ve had a fulfilling week, filled with accomplishments and strides towards automation excellence. As always, the Puppet team is here to keep you updated on the latest developments and advancements in the world of infrastructure automation. Join us as we share the latest insights and exciting news from the Content & Tooling (CAT) Team, working diligently across Belfast and Pune to elevate our modules and tools.
Ramesh was working on making modules CI green and fixed most of our CI failures. This maintenance was carried out to help improve the resiliance of our CI pipelines for some of our supported modules. Some modules that received these updates are puppetlabs-iis and puppetlabs-apache.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Rajat, he will be joining the CAT Team in Pune, India and will be focussing on Modules. The whole team are thrilled to have Rajat join us.
Here are a few words from Rajat himself:
I’m Rajat Tiwari and I have recently joined as Software Engineer with Puppet Team in Pune, India. I have an experience of 3 years working with backend technology primarily ruby, ruby on rails, JS and frontend technology using html, haml, css, jQuery. Professionally being an Engineer I love to be part of product discussions to identify and solve the problems that add value to the product and improve end user experience. And personally during my leisure hours, I like to read books, follow F1 races or may be binge watch movies and series. It feels good to be part of the team and I look forward to adding value to the product and the community meanwhile learning and collaborating with you all.
