What is Puppet?
Puppet is a platform for configuration management, continuous delivery and IT automation of any application. Puppet is everywhere: in the smallest start-up to some of the world’s largest enterprises. It’s used by tens of thousands of organizations in over 100 countries, from every corner of the technology industry; finance, manufacturing, media and entertainment, retail, healthcare and beyond. Scale your entire business by automating and managing everything from PCs and servers to VMs and containers in hybrid cloud environments with Puppet Enterprise. Puppet works on almost anything, from physical hardware to virtual machines and containers to cloud services - we'll even help you make sure that code out in GitHub is getting deployed correctly.
What is Ruby?
Ruby is not just a programming language, but an entire philosophy about programming. It makes programming fun, productive, and rewarding. Most programs consist of code that needs to be organized into functions. And so most Ruby programs consist of classes and modules containing useful functions for interacting with the real world, operating on text, working with objects, creating GUIs, doing system administration tasks, building web applications… you name it. Ruby is at its heart a toolkit for accessing existing libraries like OpenSSL and providing something like Visual Basic style syntactic sugar to make working with them fun.
