How I Wrote a Chef Server While Waiting in Line at Best Buy – John Keiser

Where does a Chef Server store cookbooks? What can the Chef REST API do? How do you get an awesome deal on a plasma TV? 2 of these burning questions will be answered! Follow a simple Chef API server, as it evolved from a idea to execution over the course of a Black Friday last November. Learn the ins and outs of a Chef Server, marvel at the blazing wonders of Pedant, and watch the mists part before your eyes as Chef’s API becomes clear through the lens of a programmer in the cold, dark Best Buy storefront armed only with a laptop, a folding chair, and a 12-pack of Jones Soda.
