CFP Description

Come to ChefConf to share your stories about, experience with, and expertise in using continuous automation to increase speed and efficiency while decreasing risk and delighting customers. We are looking for content that is appropriate for people who are brand new to Chef, Master Chefs, and everything in between. Many talks will fit into more than one topic and many will include a mix of technology and culture.
