It’s like an obsession. You had a taste of Chocolatey and then you wanted some more. Now you can’t get enough of it. This year at PuppetConf we will bring you all-new Chocolatey Goodness and maybe even some peanut butter(?) to go along with that. Chocolatey, a Linux-like package manager for Windows, has grown up quite a bit over the last year. We’ll show you all of the new things you can do with Chocolatey, plus how the Puppet provider has grown up with all of those new options. Come learn something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Puppet has worked on Windows since 2011, Chocolatey was created in 2011. Coincidence? I think not!
Rob is a developer who has a passion for developing low maintenance solutions. In his day job he works at Puppet Labs getting his automation on. By night Rob is very active in OSS and manages several OSS projects. Some of those projects include Chocolatey (kind of like apt-get but for Windows) and RoundhousE (database migration engine, part of the Chuck Norris Framework). He tends to speak his mind about the importance of behavior-driven design, and his polyglot is all entranced in Ruby right now. Viva la DevOps!
