Sure, it’s a little late for a retrospective on 2016 but, as they say, better late than never!
Here’s a look back at some of the amazing things the Chef Community Engineering team helped deliver in 2016.
The Chef Supermarket is here to make it easy to be successful with Chef through sharing the successes of a community of practitioners. Use the public Supermarket to collaborate with the community or install your own private Supermarket and collaborate with your co-workers.
The cookbook engineering team is responsible for managing and modernizing the Chef-managed cookbooks that are published to the Supermarket. These cookbooks serve as a guide for some good practices for developing cookbooks and help automate common infrastructure components.
Open Source Projects
Chef is based on open-source software and a thriving community of contributors is important to the continued success of the project. Lots of PRs were merged and there was at least one release per week across a number of different tools in the ecosystem, InSpec, test-kitchen, ChefSpec, foodcritic, and the like.
2016 saw the launch of Habitat and the beginnings of an awesome community.
