Growing demand for infrastructure automation and the skills required to implement it led Puppet to introduce Puppet Practice Labs, a series of short, step-by-step challenges using a browser-based sandbox so students can immediately see results.
This approach means students do not need to download or install any software.
"Puppet makes automation software because we believe people have better things to do. We've built these courses to be accessible and outcome driven, so people can get the skills they need to do their job more efficiently and safely through automation," said Puppet senior manager of technical education Nikki McDonald.
"With more than 40,000 organisations using Puppet, and the demand growing for engineers, administrators, developers, architects, and managers with Puppet experience, there are so many opportunities for us to have a positive impact on people's day to day and enhance their skills to help fuel their careers."
