Provision and Manage Servers w/Otter, DSC, Git, and Chocolatey

schedule May 22nd 01:00 - 01:45 PM place Irvington

In this session, we will take a journey through the lifetime of a Chocolatey package across Windows servers in the enterprise. Some of the questions we will answer:
- How can we publish a Chocolatey package and have it automatically deployed across different environments using Otter and PowerShell DSC?
- How can we use Git to promote Chocolatey package configuration changes to different environments?
- How can Otter detect Chocolatey package version drift and automatically remediate it?
- How can we use Otter to take inventory of all installed Chocolatey packages?

    Simplicity is dead. At least, that’s what never-ending stream of constantly changing software platforms would lead you to believe.

    Should you use function-based cloud computing? Platform-as-a-service? What about containers, or is it container orchestration? And this is all before you even get to the software itself, and the layers upon layers of abstractions and packages that need to be considered before even thinking about writing code that serves the business.

    We’re in the middle of development technology paradigm shift, living in an adapt-or-die world. But there are a lot of key decisions to make, and I’ve seen a lot of organizations make the wrong decisions and end up down a pretty grave path.

    Ultimately, they end up with mission-critical systems that are too brittle to change, and too broken not to. The clever engineers that design the systems eventually leave, and no one else is willing to fix the mess. What seemed like a nice technological win just ended up leaving the organization struggling to maintain the systems, while competitors run laps with better, easier-to-maintain systems.

    In this talk, I’ll show how, by continuing to partner with Inedo, you can not only avoid becoming a casualty of this paradigm shift, but how you can out-innovate and demonstrate to the powers-that-be that your software platform will let them run laps around their competitors.

    I’ll also talk about my vision for Inedo’s future, including our product roadmap and how we’ll continue helping organizations address constantly emerging technology.
