Awesome Community Chef Awards

Thursday, May 24th

The Chef community is full of many awesome individuals who contribute and do exceptional things every day. Each year at ChefConf, these individuals are recognized with the Awesome Community Chef Award. These awards are a way for the community to recognize a few of the individuals who have made a dramatic impact and have helped further the cause.

The Chef Community Celebration

Sponsored by Microsoft  Microsoft Azure
Thursday, May 24th

Always epic. Always a blast. Never the typical “conference”party.

This year JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound along with DJ Major Taylor are taking over the House of Blues stage. And Azure is helping us throw, quite possibly, the best Community Celebration yet.

Be sure to RSVP for the party when you register for ChefConf 2018.

Chef Community Celebration


Friday, May 25th

Put the inspiration of ChefConf to practical, immediate use. Join other members of the Chef Community for a day of hacking and learning. Propose projects, form teams, and get to work. The day will include lots of collaboration and teamwork and we will have demos throughout the day. Projects may include Chef, Inspec, Habitat, or any other tool in the ecosystem. Come ready to work!

Sign up for the hackathon when you are registering for ChefConf.
