Catch up with Puppetize Live Amsterdam

Our last Puppetize Live stop was at Compagnietheater in Amsterdam. It was an honor to have our Puppet team, DevOps and automation experts, and our community along for the entirety of the Puppetize Live event.

What's Puppetize Live?

One of the biggest bits of feedback we’ve received over the years is to globalize our annual event. This inspired experimentation with something new: to share DevOps, cloud, containers, and software automation stories from organizations and stellar individuals from around the world on our global stage.
