PuppetConf, the operations conference of choice, is back this year. The 2012 incarnation will be larger, and located at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, CA on Sep 27 & 28. Last year we had an amazing conference with presentations on Puppet, great operations, and of course, an excellent hallway track. So we’re doubling down on the past success, and we’re adding some fresh activities, too. New to the docket: hands-on technical labs to show off some new technologies, offering our first bout of Puppet Certifications, and having an entire track devoted to community and modules.
You can be a part of PuppetConf in several ways. The call for speakers is open, and we’re looking for presentations in long-form format (45 minutes or so), as well as openspace/unconference ideas. Our Call for Presentations closes July 31, so don’t delay too long.
PuppetConf CFP: What we want
We’re interested in presentations and topics around expanding Puppet deployments, using Puppet at scale, module authoring, Puppet Forge usage and anything else related to Puppet. We also love talks on operations teams and practices that make us all better. These talks don’t have to focus on Puppet at all. We love hearing about scaling to tens of thousands of nodes, test driven infrastructure, next generation monitoring, operations with dozens of lines of business, and more. This is a great chance to let people in the DevOps world know what you’re doing.
For the unconfernce topics, nothing is off limits. We’ll tackle hard problems, we’ll theorize, deliver conjecture, and have a great time.

PuppetConf for non-presenters
If speaking isn’t your thing, it’s perfectly ok. Attending is an awesome experience. You’ll see some blog posts from featured speakers coming soon. You’ll be able to learn from listening, some from experiencing things in labs, and some from great discussions in between sessions and at night.
No matter what reasons you have to get to PuppetConf, just get there. I look forward to chatting with you and sharing our infrastructure experiences.
