Cleaning up the Kitchen: Migrating to Enterprise Chef from Open Source
In 2013 we had over 50 open source Chef servers running at the company. Cookbooks were being used to great benefit over previous methods, however it was getting confusing. Cookbooks were being forked and changed without the names being refactored. It was sort of a messy kitchen.

We decided to align with Chef and move to the Enterprise Chef offering. Join me as I walk through many lessons learned in 2014 of getting 400+ developers from 40+ teams to learn to cook together. The result has been getting thousands of nodes into a more centrally manageable location. After I share how we got our kitchen in order, I'll share our plans and progress for 2015 of providing common building blocks of continuous delivery within a large company.
