* @geekubed: Ditto! Amazing. RT @tamayoduck
Thanks @jasonstowe for bringing science to #ChefConf... Really compelling use cases for compute automation
@rberger: @DisneyChefQs Keynote is a great story of DevOps adoption and they're going to show code, YAY! Culture & Tools #Chefconf
Haha. Wagner: "describing Mavel XP: 'no more grabbing tarball, putting it into perforce, scp into yadda yadda'" (crowd laughs)
Wagner: "Dev: 'yea totally, we devs don't want that either!'
Wagner: "How do we get dev to stop checking stuff into his local Peforce repo? We're using artifactory
Wagner: "For orchestration, we're using #rundeck; we love it" /cc @damonedwards
Golly. Wagner's slides and builds are so pretty... Envious...
@chipadeedoodah: #ChefConf Disney talk reinforcing my opinion that artifact repo is an essential piece of CD pipeline. Wishing for better options than Maven.
@rberger: @DisneyChefQs Keynote continued awesomeness. Showing how they got started with Chef for deploying Marvel XP Game service! #ChefConf
Wagner: "Here's how we built continuous integration for chef.." (this is awesome)
Wagner: "Source control: apps, containers, infrastructure: switched to github enteprise; used LDAP for logins
Wagner: "Stood up artifact repository: artifactory in beginning, but switched to nexus; used for all envs for build/deploy
Wagner: "Rundeck: delegates & schedules: deployments, maintenance, forensics; originally just a replacement for cron
Wagner: "config mgmt: deploys and audits; source of truth, cross platform
@newgoliath: #chefconf "gotta respect that archive repo"
Wagner: "ingredients: src ctrl, continuous integ, artifact repo, orechestration, config mgmt
Scott: "Sites using chef: disney.com; go.com; spoonful.com (drupal 30MM view/mo), disneycareers.com; Disney Infinity (game)
Scott: "Change ctrl: all change orders and chg req goes into service desk; plugin automatically creates chg order"
Scott: "Network Location plugin find out where this node lives"
Scott: "MOTD handler; @julian_dunn: . @Disney also wrote a network location plugin for Ohai to store DC location, VLAN, VLAN name as auto attribs #ChefConf
@ericreeves: knife-servicedesk? Automated change orders? HOLY SHIT. MY BRAIN JUST IMPLODED WITH AWESOME.
@julian_dunn: . @Disney also wrote a custom LWRP to interact with F5s #ChefConf
@juliandunn: Disney also has a nexusfile resource LWRP (similar to @RiotGames' nexus cookbook LWRPs) #ChefConf
@julian_dunn: Many good ideas and utilities from Disney, but sad that they can't contrib back to the community. #ChefConf
@miah_: RT @ohlol: WE DONT ALLOW COMPILERS BUT LOL RUBY INTERPRETER
@VigilantGuy: What I learned from #chefconf Tweets: b the Automator not the Automated
@glennodonnell: “@RealGeneKim: Putonen: we're all becoming Devs ... we have git repos for cookbooks" #chefconf Profound indeed! Infra is code, so it's true!
@dougireton: @opsrob is rocking his #chefconf keynote on Leveling Up Your Change
