You can run puppet and ansible on a local machine without problems! there
is no need for a server!
Just install it, run it, set it up, start configuring and developing for
Puppet is one example of the many things that I want to learn. But yes,
that is the first thing I would like to learn. If I need to install, run,
configure Puppet/Ansible on my local machine, where do I test it?
