Chef, Git and Ruby

In the last month I have been working on building chef configuration for deployment and management of the infrastructure of the current client,it is a very complex setting for an ISP and many bespoke setting and applications so using any existing chef recipes will need to be modified heavily that we are creating them from the start.

The choice of Git as a version control system was dictated by the development team and the more I work with it the more I learn to HATE it, it is full of features to a  point that it is becoming annoying and when you want to drop a section and move to work on something else it twists your arm to act in a specific way that I find upsetting.

Chef and ruby I am getting learning to accept and  becoming competent in their use , so much so that a project I was planning to work on in Puppet initially , I am now contemplating to migrate to Chef.
