Hardest question I get about work I do: "So Clifford, what do you do at work?"

Uhhhh, I make sure a bunch of servers are running and enforce they are doing it right.

Or this... 😅

other team at work uses Chef and it seems ok

using Salt right now and it's pretty damn powerful too

@feld Yeah, I started out using salt actually. Was put in charge of managing thousands of digital signage machines. It was the reason I actually started a github account so I could file bugs on Saltstack a long time ago.

I probably prefer chef just because at my current gig I had to REALLY grok it. Learned a lot of the ins and outs, querying for specific servers by really specific criteria, has great learning resources, and because the documentation is really good.

They are all great though!
