ChefConf 2018: Announcing Main Stage Speakers

It’s just under a month until ChefConf 2018 kicks off in Chicago! We’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on the program for the event, May 22-25 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Today I’m excited to share more of our program with you, and some of the partners and customers who have agreed to spend the week with us sharing their stories of digital transformation.

Keynote Speakers

Both Wednesday and Thursday of the conference feature main stage “keynote” presentations which provide context and insight into the new features and scenarios supported by the Chef family of tools. Speakers on this year’s main stage include:

Chef Customers

Chef users including the Gates Foundation, Toyota Financial Services, CSG, and more will take you through their IT and application delivery projects, and the impact of automation in delivering delight to their customers at cloud speed.

Chef Partners

Partners such as Microsoft, AWS, and more will show you how Chef Automate works with their platforms and clouds to help organizations deliver apps faster, and with greater insight, across both on-prem and cloud based estates.

Chef Leadership

Chef’s own Adam Jacob, Barry Crist, Corey Scobie, Nathen Harvey and more will run through the latest innovations in both application and infrastructure modernization, with technical insights and live demos of the newest features and functionality in Chef Automate and Habitat.
