Creating platform-agnostic application packages with Habitat


One of the dreams of development is to build a software package once – and deploy it anywhere. With current open source projects, this dream is closer than ever. Join Nell Shamrell-Harrington, Senior Software Development Engineer at Chef, during the very first Microsoft Azure OpenDev event, as she discusses how to create software packages that run (almost) anywhere with Habitat. You’ll see how the same application can be run on bare metal, on a virtual machine, or in a container – with everything needed to automate that application already built into the package itself. Also learn how to build and deploy these packages with the intelligence to self-organize into topologies, without needing a central orchestrator. See how the dream of platform-agnostic and self-organizing packages is fulfilled today, and how it will evolve in the future.
