Puppet has an amazing and active community with over 6,000 Puppet users and developers who regularly ask and answer questions, or have discussions about a wide variety of topics related to using Puppet. The community is a great way to learn more about using Puppet. You can see how other companies are solving their challenges and pick up some useful tips for making better use of the many Puppet features.
Being a part of the Puppet community is a rewarding experience. It brings access to great minds solving all types of infrastructure problems ranging from managing huge corporate networks to solving problems for a handful of systems. Our community members include workers from hot web startups, Fortune 500 IT organizations, academics, hobbyists, and everything in between.
The Puppet community is widely diverse but every member of the community is building toward creating and sharing IT automation successes, lessons, and patterns.
Being involved in the community isn’t difficult. Filing bugs, responding to a mailing list post, or even interacting with us on twitter means you’re already a part of our community.
