Just Enough Developed Infrastructure

In the beginning of the year the people from Puppetlabs asked me to organize a PuppetCamp Europe 2010, and about a week later the guys from Opscode asked me for a Chef Camp. It didn't make sense to do both at the same time of course, so I decided on First Come , First served.

This time, to keep my configuration management Karma points in balance in each community it's time for Chef: not a Camp but in the form of a Fundamentals course
