How to wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy: Puppet Labs recaps the OSCON party

The day after the party is always the hardest. As you brush your teeth, you remember all of the things you accomplished the night before: the people you met, the names you have forgotten, the number of extremely large Puppet t-shirts you somehow acquired, and two or three OSL mugs you carried across town back to your hotel. Perhaps those last few things only apply if you attended the Puppet Labs OSCON party last week. Here at Puppet, we have our own list of accomplishments, and a lot of it has to do with you. We are proud to announce that at this party:
  • 784 participants entered the building
  • Around $1500 of spirit, 3 kegs of beer, 40 lbs of ice, and 2000 sandwiches were consumed
  • Thousands of memorable conversations took place—there is an old Chinese proverb that is roughly translated to this: a single conversation across the table with a wise person is worth a month’s study of books.
We had a party at Puppet Labs because we hold individuals like you in high regard—individuals who value curiosity, self-motivation, and adaptability. By hosting networking parties like the one you attended, we expose ourselves to a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. So thank you, for attending, socializing, drinking, and having a blast. With that said, I am going to bluntly state that if you have the above-mentioned values and have a passion for what Puppet is all about, come work for us. We'll have a grand time. Moreover, attend PuppetConf in September so that we can keep having these conversations. Lastly, thank you to OSUOSL (Oregon State University Open Source Lab) for their donation to the party. For more information or to donate, please visit their website. Keep in touch, and see you soon.
