Managing a large Puppet installation is not historically easy. This is not likely to be better at the scale of tens of thousands of servers, and roughly one hundred active contributors. It's even harder when the existing code base is full of booby traps and time bombs, and has the reputation of a mob boss. This talk will explore how the Core Infrastructure team at Twitter managed (and manages) the following types of scenarios (and more): * A several-year-old, mixed 2.x and 3.x codebase with over 100,000 commits. * A version control migration. * Massive cultural FUD (and occasional propaganda) about Puppet.
