Habitat is a new open source community build by the team at Chef. Habitat aims to bring together the different participants in a devops process by acting as a one-stop solution for building, deploying and configuring your applications. Recently, Endocode has been working within the Habitat Community to develop support for crucial technologies that others may wish to use as dependencies in their own plans. In this blog post we describe how we went about building one of these enterprise plans: CrateDB.
Endocode is a company inspired and driven by open source methodologies. It is safe to say that we have touched bases with this company called Red Hat in the past. Founded more than 20 years ago, Red Hat has been busy proving that the open source way of developing and contributing software - collaboratively, transparent and meritocratic - is the future of IT. Today, Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source enterprise IT products, with it’s main areas of technologies being middleware, operating system, virtualization, storage, mobile and cloud computing.

It will be a busy week and if you want to meet us and talk about your open source challenges, here is where you find us:
