All things Chef, Continuous Automation and DevOps. Front to back. Top to bottom. Beginner to expert.

Register for ChefConf

In ChefConf breakout sessions you can learn from experts and peers about their experiences with Chef, DevOp, and Continuous Automation. Their stories and journeys bring to life their thinking and experiences in ways that are applicable to our customers and community – whether it’s Chef, Chef Automate, InSpec, Habitat or broader subjects.

Check back here in mid-March when the sessions within each track are announced publicly.

ChefConf Tracks

  • Infrastructure Automation

    Infrastructure as code, automating the cloud, and configuration management. What tools and practices have you put in place to improve your infrastructure automation? This may include tools for local development and testing (Chef Development Kit, ChefSpec, Test Kitchen, etc.), Cookbooks, and other tools used to describe, build, and manage your infrastructure as code.

“Hard to decide but I really enjoyed the Community Summit and the HackDay. There’s more interaction with fellow attendees at those types of events”

  • Compliance Automation

    Moving fast does not mean giving up safety. In fact, speed increases your compliance! How are you adopting compliance at velocity? What technologies and workflows are working for you?

  • Application Automation

    How do you build, deploy, and manage your applications? Share your stories about Habitat and other tools and processes you are using for application automation.

  • People, Process, and Team

    Whether you call it “devops,” “automation,” or something else, you’re probably changing the way you work. We’d love to hear about both the successes and the pitfalls you’ve encountered along the way. What are the lessons learned you wish you knew before you started your project?

  • Delivering Delight

    Continuously delivering changes to your customers requires that you adopt new workflows, new tools, and new ways of working as a team. Share your experiences and celebrate your successes with everyone.

  • Chaos Engineering

    As our systems, teams, and complexity scale up, we enter a phase of continuous chaos. DevOps principles tell us that failure is an opportunity to learn. How do you apply that same principle to chaos to embrace and learn from that chaos? Share stories of and technologies used for visibility into your running applications and infrastructure. What’s happening?! Who do we wake when things go bump in the night.

  • Don’t label me!

    Data bags, sharing secrets, attribute data, building community, etc. This is the track for anything that doesn’t neatly fit into the other tracks.
