Chocolatey Package Management with ProGet

ProGet is a Universal Package Manager. It serves as an organization's central repository, providing storage for all important assets in once place. This structure is a critical stepping stone in building more reliable software and adopting DevOps best practices.

Packages are the center of a DevOps toolchain, and are a modern necessity to increase automation, decrease deployment cycle times, and provides insight into an organization software development. In addition to extensible universal packages, ProGet supports many external repositories including: Chocolatey, NuGet, npm, Bower, PowerShell, Docker, and more.

Using ProGet and Chocolatey together lets you host your Chocolatey packages alongside the rest of your packages.

This means you can operate with a standardized process for accessing all of your packages, which is particularly relevant for quality, compliance, and security concerns across your entire development life cycle.

In this webinar, Rob Reynolds, of Chocolatey, reviews the benefits of both tools. He will also take you through a demo of how to use ProGet and Chocolatey in conjunction, for a complete Windows package management solution.
