A new year and a new blog post....
All things python: http://pycoders.com/2014/ - This is a list of the best of the pycoders weekly from last year. Some really great posts in there.
Testing our puppet code has become a big thing for us now. More and more of our code has spec tests using rspec-puppet and puppetlabs-rspec-helper. We are also starting to experiment with beaker that server-spec that allow us to boot up a Virtual Machine(VM) and run tests against an applied manifests. Which then leads me on to a interesting project called test-kitchen which was created to do a similar thing for Chef recipies. http://pocket.co/s_5Sx is an interesting post about how to use test-kitchen and docker to do the same for puppet.
Keeping up with my clearing up and with a bit of a new year burst of enthusiasm I have binned my old CD player that I brought at University and no longer works feels such a shame to take it to the tip. Also selling DVD player, AV Amp, Huge speakers on Gumtree. Now I just have a nice stereo amp and small speakers hooked up to a squeezebox for music and radio. Then an Kodi ( was XBMC ) box for watching Youtube and movies etc. All neat and tidy. Next up is sorting the Minidisc collection and getting rid of that too. Everything must go.
I got given a vice for Christmas, no not that sort, a woodworking vice. So now I just need to build a bench to attach it too. So look out for some more woodworking stuff.
