    Thank you Haggai, the meetup was very educating and informative. lots to practice moving forward.
    I'd appreciate a more concrete base for deciding whether to install a chef-server vs chef solo.

      Personally @ large scales I would use a chef server & at small scales chef-solo, nevertheless chef-solo will often be used for testing / development.

    Guys, in today's session we will be running our own Chef-Server (OSS) and bootstraps nodes to use it. In order to save time for today you can do the following:

    1. git clone [masked]:tikalk-cookbooks/ch­ef_workshop.git

    2. cd chef_workshop/chef_server_route/ch­ef-server

    3. Vagrant up in ~5 minuets you should have a server up and running 4. vagrant halt -> this will stop the machine.

    When you arrive to the workshop today you will already have a chef-server !

    you could to the same to the nodes under: chef_workshop/chef_server_route/ub­untu_node or centos_node [vagrant up && vagrant halt ]
