Doing package management on Windows can be easy when you add a little chocolatey to the mix. Chocolatey is quickly becoming the de facto standard for dealing with packages and dependencies on Windows. Come learn more about Puppet, Windows, Chocolatey and where all of this is going in the coming months.
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. He invented yet another apt-get framework for Windows, named chocolatey, hoping this time it would stick. Rob is very active in OSS and manages several OSS projects. Some of those projects include RoundhousE (part of the chuck norris framework) and Chocolatey (kind of like apt-get but for Windows). He tends to speak his mind about Behavior Driven Design and the importance of it, and his polyglot is all entranced in Ruby right now.
