Puppet - Configuration Management This project was developed from scratch, since the creation of a functional environment in localhost to developers and operator could recreate the whole infrastructure managed using Puppet, until it get to the environments, like development, staging and production.

Documentation of process, like:

  • Mounting points
  • Create new environments
  • Code deployment by operators in production with puppet apply command, using Continuous Delivery
  • Create new machines with specific modules
  • Code deployment with r10k
  • How to create new Puppet servers using Puppet

Developed codes:

Tools like Vagrant, Shell Scripts in Ruby were the great pillars for the project become viable.

All the developed code to automate environment was thinked in how to bring benefits for operators and development team.

Oracle automation using Docker for development
In this case, the demand was build a tool for developers creating scripts for Oracle, where those scripts had to pass for some pipelines until it get to production using Bamboo (Continuous integration tool).

Bamboo using Docker
Many of our projects used Docker for build the application developed by other companies. Our main problem was to create the same environment used in development to production like plugins and packages dependencies.

Shell Scripts environments
In some cases, we could not use some tools for configuration management, so I wrote scripts for environments to install and configure some tools, like: Nginx, CouchDB, Spring Boot module (Java) environment, ActiveMQ.
