Cooking With Chef

A while back I wrote a short post on becoming a Puppet Master with Puppet. Since then I’ve taken the Puppet Fundamentals Training course, wrote some Puppet manifests for private use, and setup Puppet Enterprise for my home lab. While I have not mastered Puppet, nor am I close to it, I find myself setting up a few more modules at home, all while learning how to migrate what I know about Puppet to Chef-Solo.

The journey to learn Chef, while different, has been challenging. But the overall process, logic, and workflow behind creating Chef recipes, along with the community backing, is motivating enough to keep me going on this great ride.

Here is a list of resources I’ve been using to get started with Chef development.
