There has been some time since my last post. I said I was taking a break from my previous job and learning new stuff. Well, one thing I’ve been learning is Chef.
For those who don’t know what that is, it is a great piece of software that help to the Sys/Ops to manage their infrastructures. It helps to manage the systems and the infrastructure as a code and apply to them all the things we already do to with the code: reuse it, version it, share it, test it…
I will write soon about these ideas and how this is somehow related to desktop development or GNOME, but today I write here about the conference that is going to be happen in a month at San Francisco: the #ChefConf
I’m very excited because Opscode, the company behind Chef (which is Open Source), has given me a generous discount so I can attend to the conference.
I’m going to meet a lot of great hackers from that friendly community. I feel like I know a lot of them 🙂
I’d like to thank Opscode for the discount, but also for thinking that my humble contributions to the project worth enough.
I think the community they have create around Chef is really great. You just have to ask something at the maillist or the IRC channel to see how nice is the people there. There is always someone ready to help you out.
Well, from 15 to 17 of May I will be attending the #ChefConf. If you like to attend, tell me and I’ll give you a community discount for the registration. They gave me a few.
