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.

Chef is an open source systems integration framework, built to bring the benefits of server configuration management to your entire infrastructure.




Opscode helps companies of all sizes develop automated server infrastructures. We started Chef, the popular open source integration framework whose adopters and contributors include some of the world's largest web infrastructure companies.



For those closer to the LA area, Aaron will also be presenting on the 28th.

    Big thanks to the OpsCode guys for coming to OCPHP. The subject matter was a lot to get my head around, but should help me understand what our ops guys are doing with Chef little more!

    This looks good and very interesting. I plan on going. I'm wanting to make a suggestion for future meetup possibility. I would like to see a meetup addressing how to work with the WHMCS API. What think you?
