In this talk I will give a brief overview of a generalisation of Fedosov quantization, a type of deformation quantization, to the chiral setting. In particular I will outline a geometric approach to chiral quantization using Gelfand-Khazdan formal geometry, introduced by Gorbounov, Gwilliam and Williams, which makes use of the fact that the local observables of the curved beta-gamma system encode the sheaf of chiral differential operators used in chiral quantization. If time permits I will mention some potential applications and further generalisations of this procedure.
