Event Details

Please note that this is a 2-day event and that we have two separate tickets for each day (Thursday 1/31 and Friday 2/1). If you would like to attend Puppet Camp on both days, please register for both days.

We also are teaming up with Sebastien Goasguen to host Build A Cloud Day (BACD) on Friday at the same venue. Please do NOT register for both events on Friday. Pick one or the other to help us plan for catering.

Are you going to FOSDEM in February? Want to learn more about Puppet or share your experiences using it? If any or all of these sound familiar, you should join us as Puppet Camp EU returns to its roots with Puppet Camp Ghent on January 31 and February 1!

Puppet Camps are community-oriented, regional gatherings of Puppet users and developers. You will have the opportunity to talk to a diverse group of Puppet users, benefit from presentations delivered by prominent community members, and be able to share experiences and discuss potential implementations of Puppet with your peers.

Puppet Camp Ghent will be livestreamed during the event at http://livestream.nucleus.be/. Tell your friends and co-workers who can't attend in person that they can now follow along online!

Make sure that you thank our sponsors. Without their help, we wouldn't be able to keep this Puppet Camp free of charge for attendees!

  • Thank you to HoGent for generously providing the space for the event!
  • Thank you to Inuits for sponsoring and co-organizing the event!
  • Thank you to Nucleus for providing video and live streaming!
  • Thank you to Booking.com for sponsoring the Thursday afterparty!
