Chef Community Summit – Register Now

We will be hosting the Chef Community Summit on October 14 and 15 in Seattle, Washington and hope to see you there.

This marks the fifth year for the Chef Community Summit and it has proven to be one of the most engaging events of the year for the Chef Community. The Summit is organized as a facilitated Open Space event. This type of event helps ensure that everyone has a chance to participate, the topics discussed are the right topics, and the outcomes are best for everyone.

During the first Community Summit, in 2011, the community asked about how to effectively test all of the infrastructure code that was being generated. Things like Foodcritic, ChefSpec, and Test Kitchen were born from those early discussions. Over the years we’ve discussed emerging practices for dependency management, team and development workflows, community guidelines, helping new comers, and how to run a more open project.

The Chef Community Summit provides a great opportunity to connect with your Community and Chef Engineers over two days of engaging sessions and hallway discussions. If you are passionate about helping our community, project, and company succeed and are willing to participate you are invited to the Chef Community Summit!

Early bird tickets are available for $400 each. Registration for this event is limited, so please register today!
