Session: Cheffing SharePoint
Not every engineer has the opportunity to work with bespoke software. When you find yourself working with a technology like a complex packaged software, implementing the practices of configuration management and continuous delivery can be daunting. Join Naomi Reeves from Target as she tells the journey of implementing configuration management for SharePoint and the lessons learned along the way. You?ll learn how we combined technologies like Chef, PowerShell DSC, and SharePoint to improve our product, but also how we approached the problems and constraints of a complex packaged software. Not working with SharePoint? That?s just fine. The lessons learned from this journey are broad and applicable to other technologies. Even the unsexy technologies deserve a champion.
