State of the Puppet Community: PuppetConf 2014

1,126 views

Published on

Co-Presenter: Kara Sowles

The Puppet Community is one of the things that makes Puppet so special, partly because it is filled with amazing, helpful Puppet users from all over the world. It's a great place to get answers to questions, but the real magic is with the people who are contributing answers, bug reports, help, pull requests, and much more. This session will talk about the many ways that people can contribute to the community.

This session will cover:
* what the community looks like now with some real data from our metrics.
* plans we have for improving the community over the next year (or so).
* how you can contribute to Puppet and our community.
