Best practices for getting to continuous deployment faster and with dramatic results in reduced outage minutes, development costs, and QA testing cycles. Brought to you by Rainforest QA.

Today is the second of three entries focused on configuration management tools.  Today’s interview from last week’s DevOps Days is with Matt Ray from Chef.

Matt did a cool a presentation on the first day about how to introduce DevOps to traditional enterprises (see below) and I was able to grab him on the beginning of Day two to hear about his talk and the latest regarding Chef.

Some of the ground Matt covers

  • His talk about taking DevOps into the traditional enterprise “Helping horses become unicorns” (see presentation below)
  • Recent announcements from ChefCon e.g. Chef Metal etc
  • How they will be participating in this week’s OpenStack conference
  • Some of the traditional enterprises using Chef e.g.  Nordstroms, Target, GE
