Gannett shares their DevOps journey at re:Invent

3000 Chef stickers, 1000 Chef shirts and 500 ‘recovery’ kits (it was Vegas, after all). During our time at re:Invent we were overwhelmed and overjoyed with the love, interest, and engagement from attendees, partners and customers – thank you!

Throughout the week we heard AWS reinforce the strategic nature of DevOps as a tool, culture, and ecosystem. This year there was even a specific DevOps session track.

Our friends at Gannett took us inside their own DevOps journey. Watch the re:Invent session recording to hear about their journey from a slow, manual starting point, how they modernized a broad IT portfolio to include AWS and Chef, and were then able to speed app deployments from weeks to minutes.

Watch the short video below from USA Today to hear how the Gannett IT team reached their goals with Chef and AWS:

Chef is proud to be acknowledged as both an AWS Advanced Technology Partner with the brand spanking new DevOps Competency program, as well as being recognized for embodying the core principle of ‘Invent and Simplify’ at the APN Partner Summit. We had a blast at re:Invent and look forward to another year of AWSome with our friends at AWS. If you’d like to get started with Chef in AWS today launch our new AMI directly from the AWS Marketplace.
