Config Management Camp

3 and 4 February 2014

Gent, Belgium

Puppet Contributor Summit

The Puppet community has been growing very quickly over the past two years. At early Puppet Camps, we had mostly contributors working together on ways to make Puppet better, but as the community has grown, our Puppet Camps have attracted so many new users that it's become difficult for established contributors to find a place to collaborate together.

The plan is to hold two contributor summits per year with the first one at CfgMgmtCamp.eu and the second at PuppetConf. We want this event to attract both existing and new contributors to Puppet, related projects and modules. We hope to get existing contributors more engaged, encourage new contributions, and improve our processes for working with community contributors.

Who should attend

  • People who have submitted pull requests and contribute code to our projects.
  • Community members working on related projects (Dashboard, Puppetboard, Foreman, etc.)
  • Module developers and publishers.
  • Key community members who answer a lot of questions about using Puppet.
  • Long-time Puppet users who are interested in doing more.
