Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Puppet community is one of the things that makes Puppet so special, as it's filled with helpful, knowledgeable people from around the world. Come learn more about your community through metrics, anecdotes and an overview of ways to get involved! In our talk, we'll cover the many places to ask questions of other users, like the Ask Site, mailing lists and IRC, as well as the in-person events that introduce you to other users, like Puppet User Groups, Puppet Camps, contributor events like #puppethack and the Puppet Contributor Summit. This talk is a great way for new contributors to find the right venue to get involved - and practiced participants to get some insight into the bigger picture and where we're headed.
