Description

Break down automation with our tasty and easy to learn Chef tutorial!

Write your own code and design your infrastructure from scratch to build the perfect combination of machines for your need. Building and configuring your perfect cloud infrastructure shouldn’t be hard – and with Chef it really isn’t.

Chef is a collection of configuration management tools, that can help you code exactly how your infrastructure should look, behave and evolve. You write pieces of codes in Ruby, which are known as recipes, that are used to configure systems. These recipes are then deployed to multiple serves, which then follow the instructions defined in the cookbook.

If you want to become a chef and write the ultimate cookbook for your cloud architectures, then here is where you can start!

Our awesome course on Chef has been designed with the perfect combination of sweet and spicy to help you not only learn Chef, but also show you exactly how you can build the best stack. No more daunting concepts, that cover just theory and leave you more confused. Our ‘Understanding Chef’ tutorial will take you on a journey of learning Chef.

In this course, you will not only jump into Chef and it’s functions, but instead you will become familiar with it as you build a complete real-world example from the ground up. The course is a long lab that will take you through the features and functions of Chef by building an actual LAMP stack. Our hands-on approach to the course, will not only help you learn the basics but also actively build components on the development stack such as Apache Web Server, MySQL server, and PHP.

From working with Chef, to writing your own recipes and building your own blueprint, this course can help you through it all!

Enroll now and become a master chef of automation!
