Chef Cafe - Mountain View

Have questions about Chef? Are you doing some cool stuff with Chef and what to share it with others chefs? Come to Red Rock Coffee in Mountain View and meet me, Rob and other Bay Area Chef users. We will meet on the first and third Thursday of the month between 5pm - 7pm. Look for an Opscode Chef sticker (most of the time we will be at the 2nd floor, but I will post an update if we can't find enough space).

Note: This is an informal meeting (that's why we meet at a cafe) and we welcome everyone regardless of your experience with chef. If you have questions this is a great place to ask them and establish the connections with people that can help you in the future. There is no presentation on these chef cafe meetings, and if you want to share something in a more formal way please let us know and we will schedule a separate meetup for that.

    The trick to have a chef resource forced to be created before any following chef resources are executued:

    # Create a user instance
    u = user 'joe' do
    supports manage_home: true
    comment "User I need created now"
    action :nothing
    end

    # Force the create action immediately on that user object
    u.run_action(:create)

    # Now can do things with the user or user home in following chef resources

      Data bag looks like this:
      secret = Chef::EncryptedDataBagIt­em.load_secret("/ch­ef/encrypted_data_bag_se­cret")
      hadoop_keys = Chef::EncryptedDataBagIt­em.load("secrets"­, "mine", secret)

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
