Lessons learned from Walmart's ongoing Puppet journey, to include:
* Cultural foundations of our deployment:
- Nothing ventured, nothing gained: Realize that there is some risk, but that we will travel the road together.
- Trust in engineers fuels empowerment
- Empowerment fuels passion
* Refactoring for roles and profiles
* The introduction of Windows!
* As many anecdotes as we can This is kind of preliminary; we'd welcome any pointers and Alanna's help last year was absolutely invaluable
- Passion fuels results
* Migration from open source to PE
