It's Not Just for Servers: Chefing Your Development Environment (The Pivotal Way)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At Pivotal Labs we found that our wide range of development machines were suffering from the same problems that chef was designed to solve on servers. They were inconsistent, required manual updating, and were based on monolithic images which were painful and costly to recreate. Chef has allowed us to maintain similarity in our workstations and share configuration expertise while allowing total developer control. Along the way, we've learned lessons about building chef knowledge in development teams, testing chef recipes, and quite a bit about OSX.
