Sure managing machines at scale can be challenging. But what about when you have rogue root users removing your tools. What if your machines got up and walked away or joined Starbucks network. Come hear about the challenges of managing a fleet of engineers laptops in a hacker culture.

At Slack, we are switching to using Chef to manage all of our endpoints (laptops, desktops, etc), across 3 platforms (Mac, Windows, Ubuntu), with that we are also using InSpec to ensure that those endpoints continue to meet our security requirements.
