The agenda for Puppetize Live is here!

TL;DR: The agenda for Puppetize Live is… live! We hope you’ll join us in San Francisco, Sydney or Amsterdam.

We’re excited to share the agenda and many of the speakers who’ll be presenting at Puppetize Live in San Francisco, Sydney and Amsterdam this October.

What to expect

In addition to the sessions on everything from containers to Puppet Bolt, you’ll notice some other things on the agenda:

  • The pre-event meetup, a casual event where you can socialize with fellow Puppet users and Puppet subject matter experts the day before Puppetize Live.
  • Puppet Connect, which is a special time for you to meet and talk shop with fellow community members and Puppet employees as Puppetize Live wraps up.
  • Training opportunities before or after Puppetize Live, depending on the city. There’s Getting Started with Puppet for people who are newer to Puppet, and Puppet Practitioner for more advanced users. Learn more here.
  • An hour-and-a-half for lunch and more. Beyond lunch fare and chatting with your table mates, there will be demo stations and Puppet subject matter experts on hand to answer questions about anything from our products to Contributor Summit Month.

Who to expect

Attendee-wise, this is first and foremost an event for the community of people who use Puppet — and plenty of Puppet employees will be there to talk shop and show you what’s new.

Speaker-wise, it’s a mix of community members sharing their stories and wisdom and Puppet folks showing you something new or a new way to do things.

Thank you

Thanks to everyone who submitted a talk proposal! We got a ton of amazing proposals, and we're really grateful to be part of a community that's so eager to share what they've learned with others. One of the biggest drivers for the change from PuppetConf to Puppetize Live was to create more opportunities for people around the world to participate, so it was great to see so many proposals from folks around the globe.

Thank you to everyone for trying something new with us. We have a lot to share, and we're excited for the opportunity. We hope to see you at Puppetize Live — whether in San Francisco, Amsterdam, Sydney, or online!

Plus, thank you to Splunk for being our platinum sponsor and to OnyxPoint and Example42 for being our Silver+ sponsors.
