You've got your unit tests - you've got your functional tests - but it's all for naught if your server won't start! With Chef (http://www.opscode.com/chef/) we’re writing code to setup resources on servers, but how do we write tests for infrastructure as code? Dakota Dux will talk about why Nextpoint (http://www.nextpoint.com/) treats servers like candy wrappers, and how to use test driven development to improve your chef recipe progression. We’ll breeze through the basics of developing Chef cookbooks, and then dig into writing some tests for infrastructure as code using test-kitchen.
