SaltStack Meetups

Find your tribe. Join an existing SaltStack meetup to connect and learn with other SaltStack customers, partners, and contributors near you. Include SaltStack as an organizer of any newly formed Meetup.com chapter, and we’ll pay the monthly dues.

The SaltStack virtual user group is for anyone with an Internet connection, but is especially great for community members who live in Antartica, who prefer 24/7 sweatpants, and those who don’t have a local SaltStack user group chapter to attend.

If you missed SaltConf19 we have you covered. Go to the SaltConf19 speakers page to get access to video recordings of 30+ keynote and breakout session presentations. Recordings from previous years are available on the SaltStack YouTube channel.
