Test Kitchen 1.0 with Fletcher Nichol

We just found the perfect way to get you in the right mood for ChefConf :). Come join us Tuesday April 23rd in Mountain View for a great evening with an awesome presentation about everyone's favorite subject, Chef testing by Fletcher Nichol one of the most awesome community chefs.

Test Kitchen is a tool that helps you test a Chef cookbook or other software in an isolated target environment. The current version started life as a project called Jamie CI and was incorporated under the Test Kitchen banner in January. In this talk Fletcher will cover the project's goals, core concepts, the anatomy of a test run, how to use it in your own project, and how to extend it for maximum flexibility. Test Kitchen is designed to be as minimal as possible and focused on real world use cases so if something is missing, he wants to know about it! There will be plenty of time for all your test kitchen related questions.

Fletcher Nichol is a software developer from Edmonton, Canada who has worked in jobs ranging from systems administrator to web application developer. He spends far too much time writing open source software and far too little time playing the drums. He is the author of many community Chef cookbooks and is the lead developer of Test Kitchen 1.0. Fletcher currently works for Blue Box building hosting and deployment infrastructure.


This meetup is sponsored by ChooChee, providing the venue and also food and drinks for everyone! Thank you for supporting the Bay Area Chef community!

    I will also be passing thru S.F. at about 5 PM. I don't want to get stuck in the middle of the city traffic at that hour, but can pick up people going south to the meeting anywhere between the NorthBay - Santa Rosa and 101 down to Golden Gate Bridge and then along 19th Avenue , 280 , 85 Route. ( west of 101 and parallel ) call or text me at[masked]

    Super stoked, but gambling on my flight arriving on time that afternoon. How are other folks planning to get there from the general ChefConf vicinity?
