    The Discussion

      For everyone's sake: the URL from this session slides to download 'Puppet Resource Guide for Azure' .PDF file seems indeed right but if saved may not work properly and result in a 'Page not found'.

      So please to download above .PDF file correctly please 1) just open this new dedicated page and 2) then complete download 'Getting Started Guide for Deploying Puppet Enterprise in Windows Azure' file.

      As a bonus from same page you'll also be able to download 'Puppet PowerShell cmdlets for Microsoft Azure' to learn about 3 new PowerShell cmdlets included with Microsoft Azure SDK.

      Hope this helps

      Unluckily including too many URLs seems spam to Ch9, so this one alone should work.

      Here's the direct link to 'Puppet PowerShell cmdlets for Microsoft Azure' bonus .PDF also available from same page above (as of now).

      Hope this helps too
