For many years, server administration was a grueling, manual process. It was one area of computer science that hadn't caught up to the agile, iterative techniques of software development. Thanks to Chef, you can now automate your server deployments with the same confidence with which you run your unit tests. Even software developers can overcome the fear of sysadmin work! In an hour, former 37signals sysadmin Joshua Sierles takes you through the basics of building Chef recipes.
