So, you’re on the lookout for a Chef? Great! But, this is not where you’re going to find a typical Chef, I'm afraid. The kind of Chef Expert we are referring to is a little different to your knife-mincing, sieve-shaking and vegetable-dicing professional.
While our Chef Expert does deal with recipes, they are of the computer variety and not the take-two-cups-of-sugar type. A Chef Expert, in the world of computer software configuration, is very highly skilled and deals with highly complex computer lingo and code.
Chef software was designed to allow the user to write a ‘recipe’ on how they want a certain application to run and the Chef software would take all the desired recipes, collate them into a usable ‘cookbook’ and ensure they all run according to how they were meant to run. Seems simple, but in fact the professional that understands how the Chef software works and can install, manage and configure the desired ‘recipes’, needs to have a certain skill set.

One of the areas your Chef Expert needs to be compliant in:
Installing and implementing Chef software onto your server and ensuring that the system works with your existing platform
Ensuring the space available on your server is sufficient to run Chef
Setting up Chef so the language of choice, either Ruby or Erlang can be easily infiltrated (Ruby and Erlang are the types of language code that Chef uses)
Taking your ‘recipe’ or ‘recipes’ and introducing them to Chef so that it is easily read and understood by the software
Ensuring that Chef configures the ‘recipes’ into a readable and correctly laid out ‘cookbook’, thereby allowing the flow of the system
Setting up tasks so that they run automatically in the Chef system
Taking specific business policies and aligning these with your resources
Ensuring that the setup of the Chef software allows certain recipes to run only when there isn’t a duplication or an out of date version
