Session: Introducing Delivery in Enterprises - Lessons, Techniques, Tips and Tricks
Cædman has been working closely with Chef to introduce continuous delivery into an enterprise ecosystem. The company is using Chef Delivery within an existing Chef infrastructure, and has many of the normal issues that people run into : workflow changes, high-security requirements, and resistance to change. This talk will cover the journey from a bare, mostly sort-of CI, shop running a single Jenkins master to a company that has services running on Chef Delivery, and being continuously delivered. We will cover "Barriers to Adoption", "Solving the Soft Problems", "Delivery Truck? Oh Fudge", "The Road to Deployment Is Paved with Good Intentions" and other topics. At the end of this talk, you will be able to navigate the minefield of moving an organization from a traditional set of models to a more complete continuous delivery model. not just from a theoretical standpoint, but by seeing examples of what went well and what went badly.

Session: Build Cookbooks and the Service Delivery Canvas
So you have Chef Delivery, now what? This talk is a practical introduction to build cookbooks and how to figure out what should run in each stage. Have you ever found yourself wondering: "What is a build cookbook?" "Where should I put performance tests?" "How does this work with Docker?" If you have, this talk is for you. Come join us as we plan out a few projects in Delivery. We will start by using the Service Delivery Canvas, a tool for thinking about where things go in the pipeline, to layout our project. From there, we will take what we learned from the canvas and walk through building out a few applications, including examples from Chef's own infrastructure. We will also demonstrate multiple language runtimes and methodologies. Come be part of delivering all the things!

Session: How We Adapted our DevOps Pipeline for Chef Delivery
This session provides a look into Chef Delivery and how the pipeline is used and adapted across development teams. The shape of your delivery pipeline is critical as it controls your DevOps workflow. In this session we will demonstrate how Booz Allen leverages Chef Delivery and our lessons learned in capturing, developing, and deploying software for a federal government agency that drove us to adopt Chef Delivery. We will also discuss various Microservices design and deployment strategies that can be applied using Chef Delivery which will provide the pros and cons serving as a reference point for your current and future efforts. This enables organizations to have multiple feature teams working on different aspects of applications while ensuring confidence that changes deployed are controlled, tested, compliant, and expected.
