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.http://www.netconsonance.com/2013/03/instant-puppet-3-starter-book-is-now-available/.
