ChefConf 2018 Session: Chef and InSpec Builds with Jenkins
Annie Hedgpeth – Cloud Automation Engineer, 10th Magnitude
Nick Hudacin – Senior Systems Engineer, Relativity

We know that the right thing to do during cookbook development is to use cookstyle and foodcritic for linting, InSpec for integration tests, and Test Kitchen to test cookbook data across any combination of platforms and test suites. But how do we enforce this?

Part of the answer is to make the right thing to do the easy thing to do. The other part of the answer is to make the right thing to do the necessary thing.

This talk is meant to be an introduction to creating a continuous integration strategy for your cookbook development by using a cookbook build in Jenkins and integrating it with Git. Sprinkled throughout this talk will also be tips and tricks to using this simple build as a culture-change agent on your team and within your organization, slowly turning people’s disdain for testing into a love affair with it.
