Automate your infrastructure with Chef

Speaker had to cover a lot of ground to make the talk useful beyond the basics and I think he succeeded. It is an introductory presentation but it is not for beginners. Using slides made it possible to cover a lot of ground without a hitch, but a live demonstration might have helped cause more a-ha! moments for the audience. All in all, great job!

I didn't know anything about Chef going into this talk. All I knew was that I was heading to a "Ruby" session that had something to do with infrastructure. Well, this turned out to be an excellent session for me as even though I am a developer I spend considerable amount of time on sysadmin tasks and Chef promises to make it all easier, faster and more reliable. Great overview and nice examples. I really feel like Chef could be a useful tool for me. Christian was great, full of enthusiasm.
