In addition to many other festivities, there will be a community
hackday event at Chefconf next Wednesday,
http://chefconf2013.busyconf.com/schedule in board room C. As part of
the event I will give a tutorial on kitchen-lxc to help people get
started with both test-kitchen and Linux Containers.
For the hackday you can work on anything you like. For myself, I will
focus on extending linux container support for test-kitchen.
You don’t need a linux laptop to get started with linux containers,
just bring a laptop with VMware Fusion, VirtualBox, or an AWS account.
