The separation between how you manage your infrastructure and how you
build your applications is disappearing. Adam Jacob, CTO of Opscode and

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.

CTO of Opscode, whose mission is to bring “Infrastructure Automation to
the Masses”. He is the primary author of Chef.
