  This month PLUG welcomes Kyle Burton, who will be giving a
  presentation entitled "Leveraging Chef-Solo for Less than Enterprise-
  Scale Deployments."  Kyle has previously given this talk at PLUG West
  in September.

    "When you're a small, and I mean small, company with an even smaller
    IT department you can't afford not to automate provisioning and system
    administration. Developing a culture of automation early on is vital
    for ensuring that your infrastructure group can scale itself as your
    business grows. Chef is an up and coming system administration
    automation framework that makes installing and managing cloud
    computing systems take less time and produces more consistent results.

    This talk will cover the architecture of Chef-Solo, getting started,
    core features and best practices for maintainng a cluster of systems."

  The meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 6th from 7-9 pm

          University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (USP)
          Griffith Hall C
          600 South 43rd Street
          Philadelphia, PA 19104-4495

  USP is located in University City.  Driving directions are
  available at <>, or
  <>, both of which have an aerial
  view of the campus buildings.  USP is also easily accessible by
  public transportation.

  There will be an open Question &amp; Answer session at 7PM, prior to
  the main presentation at 8PM.  This is an open meeting; all are
  welcome and encouraged to attend.

  Usually, a number of members get together after the meeting at a
  nearby restaurant for food and perhaps a beer or two.  Come join
  the camaraderie!
