We're now accepting presentations for PuppetConf 2014, and you have until March 18, 2014 to submit your amazing talk!

This is your chance to talk about all the interesting ways you are using Puppet technologies in your environment! We are looking for sessions that range from how-to information for beginners to advanced topics for experts, and everything in between.


Here are a few examples of what we would like to see:

  • Introductory topics for getting started with Puppet, modules, or other technologies.

  • Tips and tricks for using Puppet, MCollective, PuppetDB, Razor, Hiera, Facter, etc.

  • Case studies with details about how you use Puppet in your environment: what worked, what didn't.

  • Deploying and using Puppet at enterprise scale.

  • Using Puppet to manage Windows.

  • Using Puppet to solve problems related to release management, continuous delivery, application release automation, change control and similar processes.

  • Interesting new technologies and how they can be used with Puppet.

  • Related technologies, like Vagrant, Docker and Logstash, and using them with Puppet.

  • Using Puppet in the cloud with OpenStack, AWS, Rackspace, Eucalyptus etc.

  • Using Puppet with virtualization software, like VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, Citrix/Xen, etc.

  • Using Puppet to automate network and/or storage infrastructure together with compute infrastructure (avoiding silos with software-defined infrastructure).

  • Advanced Puppet topics and using the related technologies in new and interesting ways.

  • DevOps culture, process and tools along with how to make working in operations a better experience.

Submissions are due by midnight PDT on March 18, 2014.
