We are pleased to announce the following tutorial by Brad Knowles

Just Enough Chef Recursive Bootstrap

Tuesday 20th March

There's more than one way to do it (TMTOWTDI or TIMTOWTDI, pronounced "Tim Toady") is a Perl motto. This concept has found it's way into other languages as well, including Ruby. Whether you like it or not, if you're using Opscode Chef to help you manage your "Infrastructure as Code", then you're programming in Ruby.

However, when you're trying to learn a new tool or a new programming language, "Tim Toady" is not your friend. The purpose of this tutorial is to give the participant an opinionated introduction to just enough Chef with a mix of hands-on experience and lecture, and to try to help the participants discover "One -- and preferably only one -- obvious way to do it."

By the end, the participants should be able to take with them the systems they have built and the tutorial materials they have received, and give the same to help others get bootstrapped into the Chef community in the same way that they experienced themselves. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop or other portable computer with Internet connectivity, and to have at least some knowledge of developing code in, and system administration of, a Unix/Linux or Unix-like environment. Previous experience with Ruby, git, github, and similar tools is not necessary but may be helpful.
