PuppetConf 2013

I recently attended PuppetConf 2013 (the 3rd annual event) and all I can say coming away from that is wow. It was an amazing event with quite a few amazing speakers and sessions out there. There were over 100 speakers and more than 1200 attendees.

With seven tracks going at a time, not including demos or hands on labs, it was quite an event. Disclaimer: ......

These are known as automatic packages. Automatic packages are what set Chocolatey apart from other package managers and I daresay could make chocolatey one of the most up-to-date ......

Chocolatey - Guidance on Packaging Apps with Both an Install and Executable/Zip Option

One of the thoughts I've been considering recently with chocolatey is consistency with packages and naming conventions as chocolatey continues to grow. It's fine to name packages by the app/tool name, that's both intuitive and expected. What I am more interested in is when an application has multiple installation options (ie. an MSI and a ZIP). It can become confusing for people to install these when they don't know what they are getting if they call a package that has both. If you start with one ......
