LAPHP April Talk: Chef by Opscode

  • April 28, 2011 · 7:00 PM

 

ABOUT PRESENTER

Aaron Peterson is a long-time Systems Engineer and Administrator who has worked at scale for companies like Amazon.com and BofA.  Now helping folks build fully automated infrastructure as a Technical Evangelist for Opscode, Inc.

Aaron will give a basic overview of Chef, a leading open source tool and framework for automating configuration and systems integration.  He'll then show how to build a Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP application stack using existing community cookbooks to demonstrate the powerful and dynamic nature of infrastructure built with Opscode Chef.  We'll look closely at the methods and templates used to install and configure PHP in this stack.

    Talk was great although it ended up being a little long, a 5-10 minute get up and walk around break would have been nice.

    Very informative and insightful.

    I thought the presenter did a good job of explaining high level concepts to non sys-admin participants in the audience.

    Not this time unfortunately, we don't have a capacity to stream them live right now. Probably will need to ask some help from the group to do these recording in the future (we need someone who can operate the camera and have some experience dealing with videos).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
