Six years ago I started working furiously on this little side project about package management for Windows. It started to grow and over time it became clear that it was going to be something important. A community flourished and there was a tremendous uptake for this little .

Fast forward to present, starting soon I will be focused solely on as the Founder of Software, Inc*! It’s an exciting opportunity to really see where we can take this Windows software management thing!

I also could not have had the opportunity to forward without the support of a tremendous community, who has contributed to Chocolatey’s success in many . Your support does not go unnoticed – we will continue to make open source improvements, along with ensuring that organizations can take Chocolatey to the next level with Chocolatey for Business.

Chocolatey.IO - Software Management Automation

It’s a bit bittersweet as I’ve had the opportunity work with a lot of fantastic folks at Puppet and do some really awesome things for furthering automation on Windows. In many ways Puppet has been an amazing place to work (I highly recommend it, they have the remote situation handled). However, an opportunity to follow my first love, Chocolatey, is a dream I won’t pass up.

Not everyone gets the opportunity to follow their dreams, so when you get a chance it can be both a thrilling and scary ! Here’s to the future of Chocolatey and Windows automation!

* – For those keeping track – Chocolatey Software was formed in November 2016 as a spin off of RealDimensions Software, LLC

On this blog you’ll find just about anything I find interesting that has to do with development including Puppet and Chocolatey. Because we are all polyglot programmers in our own way, you may see anything from NHibernate to some custom CSS.

Nobody is perfect and occasionally I may post something you find incorrect. Please keep me straight! With your help and interaction the community will benefit.
