Chef Fundamentals


Chef is a systems and cloud infrastructure automation framework that makes it easy to deploy servers and applications to any physical, virtual, or cloud location, no matter the size of the infrastructure. Learn how treating your infrastructure as code with Chef simplifies the way you manage and automate your infrastructure, making it more maintainable, versionable, testable, and collaborative.


Target Audience
This course aims to prepare key development, engineering, and operations staff to use Chef to write infrastructure. Each of the core units in the course has hands on exercises to reinforce the material.

It’s best that students of this class have some familiarity and comfort 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


Upon completion of this course you will be able to

Automate common infrastructure tasks with Chef
Describe Chef’s architecture
Describe Chef’s various tools
Apply Chef’s primitives to solve your problems
