Community, Bacon, and Giving Back

We’re only about a month away from this year’s Opscode Community Summit.

The Opscode Community Summit is a unique opportunity for open-source contributors, Opscode engineers, and Chef users of all experience levels to come together and share their passion and excitement for Chef.

The Opscode Community Summit is a facilitated Open Space event. The participants of the summit propose topics, organize an agenda, and meet to discuss and work on the ideas that are most important to the community.

Topic ideas are currently being proposed on the Opscode Community Wiki.
