There are few device-based modules in the wild, and there is little documentation for them. This talk will give insight into device-based modules, using a simple framework to quickly build a device-based module (agentless Puppet). To give quick results and getting something immediately useful, it uses the internet-enabled Philips Hue light bulb as the central use case. It shows how simple and how little code is required to interact with the philips hub using http / rest / json. This should show how easy it is to start once you have a code skeleton, but how easy it is for others to add functionality once the skeleton of the code is there.
