The Chef Prince of Azure: How 10th Magnitude used Chef to flip-turn ZS Associates into Microsoft Azure Royalty
Now, this is a story all about how
ZS got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right back,
I'll tell you how we used Chef on the Microsoft stack.

Come hear the rap on how ZS Associates, a Global Sales and Marketing Data Firm, massively accelerated their change velocity and eradicated manual config errors by implementing Chef on Azure.

Trevor, by the way, will literally be rapping--with props to Will Smith.
