Yes you can! I myself started out with only a basic understanding of linux and no experience with any programming. It took me about 2 years, but now I can make puppet do pretty much what I want. The most of my time was spent on figuring out linux functionality, so I could put it in puppet(which was often the easier part).

Can't say if it'll boost your career options, but it never hurts to learn more. There are other big players in the 'configuration management' world like Ansible and Salt. I never tried those systems because we were already using puppet, they might also be worth a look if your not committed yet.

I do like puppet though... if you understand the basics it quickly becomes very usable.

Thanks for very useful info. This helps a lot. I will suggest this to my company so they can explore to offer these services to clients. My current company is www.uniqueperform.com
