This month, we have Nathen Harvey from Chef talking about Habitat.
Habitat is a new approach to automation that focuses on the application instead of the infrastructure it runs on. With Habitat, the apps you build, deploy, and manage behave consistently in any runtime — metal, VMs, containers, and PaaS. You'll spend less time on the environment and more time building features. This open source project was recently announced and we'll spend some time looking at Habitat and maybe even have time for you to get some hands-on experience with it.
Nathen Harvey, VP of Community Development at Chef, helps the community whip up an awesome ecosystem built around the Chef platform. Nathen also spends much of his time helping people learn about the practices, processes, and technologies that support DevOps, continuous delivery, and high velocity organizations. Prior to joining Chef, Nathen spent a number of years managing operations and infrastructure for a diverse range of web applications. Nathen is a co-host of the Food Fight Show, a podcast about Chef and DevOps, and a co-organizer of the DevOpsDC meetup group.
Thanks to Workday for hosting this meetup.
