The Chef Infrastructure Automation Workshop is a hands-on training class for getting students familiar with Chef in automating common tasks. This workshop will guide students through hands-on examples and exercises that they can follow along, while learning the basics of how Chef works and achieve success.
The exercises will cover:
- How to set up a local workstation with Chef and connect to a Chef Server
- Ways to automate web services with a real world example
- Automating user management, and privileged access with sudo
- Common system services such as NTP and SMTP consistently
- Using Chef's built-in tools and APIs to interact with the Chef Server
Each exercise is instructor-led, and introduces new Chef concepts at each stage. Important in depth topics are explained, including Anatomy of a Chef Run, Chef's Authentication Cycle, how to build roles to describe nodes, how to manipulate configuration dynamically through discovered data, searching for information from the Chef Server using its API, and more.
Join us in this workshop and learn the basics of Chef to set you on a path of victory for your organization.
