That concludes the getting started guide for Packer. You should now be comfortable with basic Packer usage, should understand templates, defining builds, provisioners, etc. At this point you're ready to begin playing with and using Packer in real scenarios.

From this point forward, the most important reference for you will be the documentation. The documentation is less of a guide and more of a reference of all the overall features and options of Packer.

As you use Packer more, please voice your comments and concerns on the mailing list or IRC. Additionally, Packer is open source so please contribute if you'd like to. Contributions are very welcome.
