There are a select few of you who know that I spent a chunk of my adult years catering and cooking in private homes of Santa Barbara, Calif. Because of this career stint, I can appreciate a Chef’s role in the kitchen: utilizing collaboration, efficiency, and product to achieve the ultimate goal of delivering high quality goods and services.
In IT today and in this DemoFriday, we have some Chefs in the kitchen wielding the knives of exquisitely crafted code and staying “behind the line,” as it’s said — in other words, offering fully automated infrastructure which exists behind the firewall and in the cloud.
Tomorrow’s DemoFriday gives you a live tour of Plexxi and Opscode’s DevOps integration using Chef for service delivery and automation. Don’t miss the opportunity to see, hear, and ask questions of Plexxi’s Derick Winkworth (senior product manager) and Christopher Brown, CTO of Opscode. They will discuss and demo Chef recipes, automatic gathering of Chef managed hosts based on roles, the use of roles to define affinity groups and attributes, tracing of node addition and propagation into Plexxi Control, and more.
I’m telling you, this IS the French Laundry of Tech. Don’t miss the meal.
