Session: From Code to Community: Contributing to the Chef and Microsoft Ecosystem
In technology, the only thing you can be certain of is change. It’s now 18 months since our first pull request to get Chef Provisioning working with Azure and we’ve seen a lot of change since that day. In this talk we’ll reflect on how we’ve watched the Microsoft, Chef and DevOps communities grow, and how the values of open-source and sharing have made this possible.

We’ll share stories of our successes, frustrations and lessons learnt - including why you should never write a technical book, how much coffee is required to work for 24 hours straight, and featuring some live demos of the tools we’ve helped to build.
