System provisioning is all too often a cardboard house held together by duct tape. Different versions of the same software live on each machine, leading to difficult to diagnose, "not on my machine" bugs. Without automation, system provisioning is an impossibly hard problem that can destroy a business. Thankfully, Chef helps solve this problem through declarative build scripts that bring all machines into alignment. In this talk, we'll discuss how to get started with chef-solo, what to do when it's not enough, and how to fit it into your organization. Come hear how Chef can make your life better, and how easy it is to use.
