Chef Foundations Training

Code: 3637 Category: Tag:

Get started with Chef by taking official Chef automation training. This instructor-led course covers all the basics. You’ll learn what it means to turn infrastructure into code so that you can automate the configuration, deployment, and management of your servers. You’ll also learn about Chef architecture and the set of tools included in the Chef Development Kit (ChefDK). Finally, we’ll show you how to test your infrastructure code so that you can deploy with confidence. Each of the core units includes hands-on exercises that will give you confidence in your new skills. At the end of the course, you’ll come away with a repo and the skills to start automating your own infrastructure.

*This course utilizes official courseware and lab environments directly from Chef.

Some familiarity with the following:

Writing code (of just about any flavor) in a text editor
Working on the command line

Basic system administration – installing packages, configuring those packages, starting service

Computer Labs Needed/Technical Specs:

Workstation Requirements:

Attendees should bring a wifi-enabled laptop to the workshop. The following operating systems have been tested as workstation systems with the hands-on exercises:

Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04
Mac OS X 10.7.3+

Windows 7

Other platforms and platform versions may work without modification. Due to time constraints, we will not be able to troubleshoot issues with unlisted platforms. Attendees should install non-Chef required software before the workshop starts.

SSH/SCP (OpenSSH, puTTY/WinSCP or equivalent)
Programer’s text editor (Vi/Vim, Emacs, Sublime Text 2 or equivalent)
Additionally, all attendees should install ChefDK.
