My apologies, this is a placeholder for a number of things I have meant to write about using Chef to deploy our cloud servers. It turns out the task took longer and was a lot more convoluted than imagined, even after considering Hofstadter’s Law, so the writing has all been pushed back. But here’s the proposed list of topics worth writing (& reading) about:
- What’s Wrong with Chef
- Chef for the Smaller-Than-Huge Guy
- Knife-zero workflow!
- Deploying MediaWiki via Chef
Last first, since it is current.
