About this Episode

Live-to-tape from ChefConf 2017, in Austin, we talk about what's going on in Chef land now, esp. in relation to compliance/policy and Habitat. We also discuss the Texas bathroom bill and Matt Ray's latest trip report on international travel. There's an important update on Coté's bean position as well.

See the video recording, if you're into that kind of thing.

Mirantis getting out of the (pure) OpenStack game

  • So...Coté was right?!
  • “announced that it will end-of-life Mirantis OpenStack support in September 2019”
  • “it’s important to distinguish between popularity and value. Popular kids in high school aren’t always the ones that end up driving a Ferrari when adults. It’s true that OpenStack is no longer the popular kid; Kubernetes is — and customers often like to go with what’s popular.” - Mirantis CMO Boris Renski
