Chef for Infrastructure Automation 

Automating server infrastructure is the need of the hour since it cuts down development and production time significantly and helps deliver better services.  Chef is one such application that lets you write scripts to automate infrastructure processes, irrespective of whether these processes are big or small. In this intensive virtual training, we teach you all about the Chef code and how it is used for automation.

Through hands on, practical lab assignments, you will learn about the Chef syntax, terminology, cookbooks and its architecture and the tools included in the Chef Development Kit (ChefDK). Learning to write Chef code is an intensive learning process but we’ll make sure that you are well versed with this art by the end of this workshop. 

Here’s what you will learn!
