This session will start with a look at the community today. I will use our community metrics to take a look at all kinds of data about pull requests, bugs, mailing lists, IRC and more. In addition to the numbers, I'll also talk about some of our top contributors. We also have much to do to make the community better. I'll be presenting my plans for improvements that we'll be making to the Puppet community.
