Slides and setup instructions from my 4/22/10 Chef talk.

Hey all -

Thanks to everyone who showed up at OpenSpace last night to chat about
and explore Chef. I hope it was enlightening or useful for everyone in
the group. Chef is a fairly young tool, and there are definitely kinks
still to be worked out - but I'm optimistic about the project's
long-term prospects.

Here's a link to my (brief) slide stack:

I've also attached walk thru instructions for setting up a chef-server
and chef-clients. The Opscode docs don't currently collect these setup
instructions in a single location, and some parts aren't mentioned at
all; I really *do* need to make time to post these notes on my own
site.

If you end up deciding to give Chef a try, I look forward to hearing
about your experiences.

Matt
