Our first annual PuppetConf, held last week here in Portland, was a remarkable event. Over a thousand of you attended or watched the live stream. Here are some other bits I’d like to share:

  • If you attended the conference, or live streamed it, we’d appreciate your feedback on our survey. You could win a $100 Amazon gift card, and a free ticket to next year’s conference.
  • PuppetConf had just over 1200 participants—300 in attendance and 900+ streaming around the world.
  • Our DevOps track was viewed by 607 participants, plus our in-house audience, which, as far as we can tell, makes it the largest DevOps event ever.
  • Our live stream included participants from 27 countries which, combined, represents viewership from every continent.
  • Puppet Labs announced Puppet Enterprise 2.0, you can sign up now to be notified when the GA release is available.

Last but not least, thanks to all of our sponsors who helped make the conference possible. Keep an eye out for our date announcement for next year. If you missed our presentations we’ll be posting slide decks and the video content very soon.

And now, PuppetConf in pictures:

Puppet Labs CEO, Luke Kanies, delivers the keynote address on day one.

We’re pretty proud of these badges. Not only did each one have a QR code that linked to the schedule, we gave people details about social events, places to eat and how to get around Portland on public transit.

Our product manager, Nigel Kersten. You have no idea what he went through to look like this.

Eucalyptus CEO Mårten Mickos delivers his talk on Open Source and The State of Enterprise Private Clouds.

That’s our executive team in a DevOps Cafe interview with Damon Edwards (far left) and John Willis (far right) from DTO Solutions.

Voodoo Donuts. Mmmm. Donuts.


And that’s Jose, with Jasper Poppe of eBay, NOT freaking out about a crushed network cable 10 minutes before the opening keynote (which did happen, a good story for another time).
