This Chef 101 Workshop for Windows is a hands on training class for getting familiar with Chef for performing common automation tasks. In this workshop, we will cover:
- Set up Windows workstation and target servers with Chef and connect to a Chef Server.
- Use Chef to automate installation/management of IIS as a real world example.
- Automate other common system tasks with Chef, including user creation with data bags, and creating custom file content using attributes and templates.
Each exercise will be instructor-led, and introduce new Chef concepts along the way. We'll cover the Anatomy of a Chef Run, Chef's Authentication Cycle, how to build roles, manipulate configuration through data in attributes, use Chef's search API for dynamic configuration, and more.
A Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client will be required in order to access workstation and target servers.
Lunch and snack will be provided. Please notify Jamie Bright (firstname.lastname@example.org) of any dietary restrictions.
