This talk by Jos Boumans takes you through setting up your infrastructure as code on EC2 with Puppet, Cloudkick, Ubuntu, boto, a few more tools and a handful of conventions, to take you from a small scrappy startup to a 200+ node deployment as a one-man ops team without waking you up at 4 am.

Find out the need-to-knows, best practices, pitfalls and common failure scenarios and how you can use and configure Puppet to protect you from them.
