ChefConf 2020 Registration is Now Open!

Registration for ChefConf 2020 is now open. Join us in Seattle or London (or both) this June!

ChefConf provides a unique opportunity for technology practitioners, DevOps engineers, application delivery engineers, and IT security professionals to hear from some of the world’s largest companies about how they are driving innovation and capturing more value from their software and IT practices. 

ChefConf is not a vendor conference, it is the Chef User Conference, showcasing the most forward-thinking technical teams in Retail, Financial Services, Travel, Logistics, Software, Philanthropy, and many other markets. You won’t just hear about Chef’s latest innovations, but also lessons learned from folks representing organizations like Carfax, Rakuten, and Early Warning.

Whether you are in the beginning stages of your automation journey or a grizzled DevOps veteran, there will be topics for you to explore and peers to learn from.  New to infrastructure automation, cloud computing, and new on-demand architectures? Searching for ways to speed up tedious security testing and benchmarking? Or maybe you’re looking for methods for building streamlined containers to modernize your application stack and manage sprawl. You won’t want to miss out on any of the great content about Chef Infra, Chef InSpec, or Chef Habitat at ChefConf 2020.

We’re still building our agenda, but we are excited to announce our first round of speakers!
