Book CoverJust a week or so ago the book was only available on the publisher’s website and Amazon. But I just did a quick search and found Instant Puppet 3 Starter on a half dozen more sites, across three continents:

I also went ahead and set up a listing on Goodreads.

I’ve been so busy this week with things mortal, I didn’t even notice that my book was published on Tuesday!

I wrote Instant Puppet 3 Starter specifically to help new users get up and running at a good pace. I explicitly focused on helping avoid common problems during installation. I walk you through building a custom puppet module. I go well beyond a basic installation to show you how to use some of the most powerful features in Puppet, including a working Hiera setup.

You can purchase the ebook directly from Packt Publishing or you can purchase the trade paperback from Amazon. I’ll be updating the book page with more locations to buy the book as they become available.

There is now a Homepage for the Puppet 3 Starter book and a FAQ and Errata page to go with it as well.
