In February Puppet 4.9 ( was released to the world, and with it came Hiera v5, a rewrite of Hiera that brings new ways of building repeatable infrastructures. From in-module data and native merging, to writing your own backends, we’ll explore all the new features Hiera v5 gives you.

Dylan Cochran of Onyx Point, Inc. ( will be leading us through some real world examples and configurations, from beginner to advanced. Some familiarity with Puppet and the Puppet language may be necessary.

Many thanks to Fuse Engineering ( who has kindly sponsored this month's meetup with organization, venue, food, and drinks.
