- You’ll want one(1) chef-supported workstation to play along. The webcast uses a Mac OS X workstation and roughly follows the getting started guide at the beginning.
- Using git clone, prepare one large, empty starter repository for mixing.
- One or more community cookbooks pulled to a git branch with knife cookbook site vendor then customized (to taste).
- A pinch of Amazon EC2 compute to do an automated launch
