Puppet's Community Day is a space for community and contributors to engage directly with each other and collaboratively learn and make some magic. Do you have a burgeoning project you want to workshop and get feedback and ideas on? Do you want get the first glimpses at changes coming to the Puppet platform? Or maybe you'd just like to help shape the next year of the Puppet community.

Expect a full day of content facilitated by Puppet's Community team. We'll talk about the roadmap for the platform. We'll collaborate on ideas and get a pulse on what people are working on and help each other solve problems. If time and interest allows, we will hold bird of a feather sessions and/or lightning talks.

Bring projects you'd like to work on and get advice and guidance from peers and Puppet engineers. We'll have workshop time on topics such as
- porting code to take advantage of strict mode
- making better use of deferred functions
- handling secrets in your modules and your infrastructure
- moving away from legacy facts
- certificate auto-renewal and ephemeral instances
