Summary

In this chapter we had a whirlwind tour of Chef, and explored the various ways we could use it to provision a server for our projects. This included:

  • Installing software with Chef
  • Managing cron jobs with Chef
  • Managing users and groups with Chef
  • Running commands with Chef
  • How recipes and cookbooks work
  • How to use Chef to provision a machine

In the next chapter we will look at how to use both Chef and Puppet to provision a machine within the context of Vagrant.
