  Puppet Resources

In this section, I will introduce you to the concept of Puppet Resources. Resources are the building blocks of Puppet and everything you do with Puppet will ultimately be to manage the state of resources. I'll begin by walking you through what a resource is and explaining the concepts of resource types and providers in Puppet and introduce you to the Resource Abstraction Layer (the RAL). Later I will demonstrate how you can use the puppet resource command to interact with the RAL to manage resources on the command line.
