Register for ChefConf

ChefConf is designed to balance intense learning with fun opportunities to explore, network and celebrate with your fellow Chef community members. The ChefConf agenda is built to provide many different opportunities throughout the week so you can unwind and engage with a unique Seattle vibe.


Welcome Reception – Monday 20

Get ready for the week ahead with a cocktail, music, and networking with the Chef community and partners.


Happy Hour– Tuesday 21

Get a taste of Seattle with local Seattle microbrews, espresso and treats. Wind down from the first day of the show and grab a drink before the evening activities.


Game Night – Tuesday 21

A ChefConf tradition. Join your fellow enthusiasts in the Chef community for a mix of tabletop, role-playing, board, and other games. A wide range of games will be provided, and attendees are encouraged to bring their favorites as well.

Community Celebration – Wednesday 22

The legendary celebration of the Chef community. Music. Games. Fun. And more than a few surprises.


Hackday – Thursday 23

Roll up your sleeves and write code with the key contributors of Chef, InSpec, and Habitat. No matter if you’re a guru or getting started with Chef, you can write code, learn, and help move the Chef community forward.


Located in the middle of everything Seattle

ChefConf’s HQ in Seattle at the Hyatt Regency is an ideal base of operations to explore the cool and creative sights of Seattle. Walk a few blocks to the Pike Place market to see the fish fly. Stroll to Seattle Center to check out the Space Needle or MoPop museum (don’t miss the Jimi Hendrix exhibit). Or head up Capital Hill and grab a craft cocktail or small batch espresso at one of the hundreds of unique establishments only found in Seattle. Need a tip? Just ask any Chef employee. Seattle is our home and we love to share our favorite secret recommendations.
