Event Details

UPDATE: The Triage-a-Thon is TODAY! Join us on #puppethack on IRC (Freenode), and check out the Getting Started Guide:


Interested in contributing to Puppet? Want to come hang out with fun people and do geeky things all day? You're invited to join Puppet community members and employees for our June Triage-a-Thon! You can participate virtually from anywhere in the world, or join us in person in our office in Portland, OR.

If you've been to previous Triage-a-thon's where we've focused on reviewing and closing tickets, you'll find that this one will be different! Our goal for this Triage-a-thon is to focus on running tickets through to completion and fixing bugs.

This Triage-a-Thon is recommended for Puppet developers and intermediate to advanced Puppet Users who are comfortable fixing bugs and contributing code. For those who want to learn more about Puppet, but aren't comfortable triaging tickets yet, we've added a special session of the Portland Puppet User Group at Puppet Labs after the Triage-a-Thon, and livestreamed online, focused on Beginning Puppet.



Participate online worldwide:


Virtually we’ll provide an IRC channel (#puppethack), IM, and rewards for people who triage tickets and get involved. You're welcome to participate at any point during the duration of the event. When you arrive online, we'll have a Getting Started guide for you to read. For those new to Puppet, we'll direct you to a livestreamed video of the Portland Puppet User Group the evening of the Triage-a-Thon, aimed at beginners getting started with Puppet.

7:00am - 4:00pm PST - Triage-a-thon online, #puppethack IRC channel (Intermediate - Advanced)

6:30pm - 8:30pm PST - Livestreamed video of Portland Puppet User Group meeting on Beginning Puppet (Beginner). Livestreaming kicks off at 6:30pm at this link:

Participate in Portland, Oregon: Join us in person at our office in the Pearl! We'll provide bagels, a delicious lunch, snacks and space in our office. Please bring a laptop computer with you. You're welcome to drop in at any point during the day of the event.

9:00am - 4:00pm PST - Triage-a-Thon in Puppet headquarters, #puppethack IRC channel. Breakfast and lunch included. (Intermediate - Advanced)

4:00pm - 6:30pm PST - Post-Triage-a-Thon social at Puppet headquarters.

6:30pm - 8:30pm PST - Special session of the Portland Puppet User Group at Puppet headquarters on Beginning Puppet. Pizza and salad included. (Beginner)


If you've attended past Triage-a-Thons, you'll note a few changes, as we work to improve the event for all participants:

- We'll focus on quality over quantity, and seeing bugs through to completion

- We won't have a tally-board showing top contributors, and we won't be measuring who worked on the most tickets, but we will give t-shirts to people participating for more than 2 hours, and we will randomly select participants for prizes during the event.

- We'll have a more thorough Getting Started resources to help attendees self-identify what to start off doing based on their prior experience

- We'll be directing those new to Puppet to our Portland Puppet User Group that evening, featuring presentations on Beginning Puppet.

We'll provide instructions for getting started, the IRC channel #puppethack to discuss issues, and provide Puppet employees on the ground to answer questions and help you make decisions! If you want a few more details about how you can help, you can read about the process we use to triage bugs.

All attendees and participants at Puppet Labs events must adhere to our Community Guidelines and Event Code of Conduct.
