If you aren't familiar with our Puppet Camps, they are community-oriented, regional gatherings of Puppet users and developers. You will have the opportunity to talk to a diverse group of Puppet users, benefit from presentations delivered by prominent community members, and be able to share experiences and discuss potential implementations of Puppet with your peers. Both new and experienced Puppet users are welcome to attend.
Here are a few videos from our recent Puppet Camp in London to give you a feel for the type of presentations that you can expect to see at our Puppet Camps or visit our Puppet Camp page for even more content from past events!
