What is Chef?
Chef is an open source configuration management tool designed to help you manage infrastructure by using a model-driven, data-driven approach.

Chef is collaborative, ensuring that you can work most efficiently with developers, DevOps teams and operations professionals.
What is Python?
Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built-in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are freely available in source or binary form for all major platforms from the python.org website and can be freely distributed.
