Infrastructure is code – the separation between how you manage your infrastructure and how you build your applications is disappearing. Adam Jacob, CTO of Opscode and primary author of Chef, will teach you what this means in practice – through showing how to deploy real-world applications with Chef on EC2.
We’ll talk about:
Deploying Web Applications… * Ruby on Rails * Catalyst * Django * Tomcat * PHP
Setting up Database Servers… * MySQL * PostgreSQL
Automating Monitoring and Trending… * Nagios * Munin * Ganglia
Centrally managing your application configuration
Along the way we’ll be talking about best practices in systems automation, quirks about EC2, and talking about how tools like Chef, Nanite, RabbitMQ and CouchDB can make your life easier.
