Liking my own blog like a boss!
As abstraction removes some of the old tasks, this requires sysadmins to enhance their skills further in the stack.

As a clojure-n00b and a Puppet expert (ahum), this announcement (puppetlabs.com/blog/new-era-application-services-puppet-labs) triggered me to do a bit of research and write down my thoughts
Last week, this post on the Puppet Labs blog caught my eye. It announces a services framework called TrapperKeeper, which seems interesting. To be honest I haven't looked into what it does and how it does the things it does.

Our new blog on how to puppetise galera cluster
Last month I spoke at the Percona Live conference about MySQL and puppet. There was a lot of interest in the talk, so I figured I'd write a blog post about it as well. I used the galera module I wrote as an example in the session, so this post will be specifically about galera.
