  • "Building IronMan, Not Programming" with Luke Kanies, Founder, Puppet and Puppet Labs
  • "Converting the Ad-Hoc Configuration of a Heterogeneous Environment to a CFM, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Chef" with Dimitri Aivaliotis
  • "Choose Your Own Adventure" with Adam Jacob

Experience Reports:
