Config management as cookery

interesting to see Chef, a configuration management framework using cooking as a metaphor.

Back in the early ’90s in Iona, I wrote a user/group synchronization tool called “greenpages” which used a cooking metaphor; “spice” (data) was added to “raw” (template) files to produce “cooked” output. Great minds, eh!

    You cook raw food by… adding spice to it? Ew.

    (I think that metaphor needed some cooking. :) )
