Groovy/Glu vs puppet/chef

software development

#1

I am trying to find an engineer who has strong linux skills but also wants to help automate deploying to my various vps and cloud servers. I tried to go down the puppet path, and hate ruby.

So the real question, how do I find a solid linux sysadmin who has coding skills (java,c) or a mid level Java guy who wants to learn devops configuration management stuff?

Oh yeah, and they have to work with me at my office in El Segundo…

Try a LUG maybe
