I offer intensive, hands-on Chef training, tailored to your needs and goals. Classes can be on-site for the convenience of the students, or we can find a central location for your distributed team. While every class is a little different, sessions are generally one-to-two days and cover some combination of:
Advanced Chef Usage
Berkshelf workflow, writing LWRPs, and more.
An introduction to Chef internals, extending the DSL, and knife plugins.
How to create custom Chef resources and why you should do so.
I also offer more topic-focused half-day classes:
Managing and using secret data like passwords and keys.
Introduction to Omnibus
Using omnibus to package and deploy your applications.
How to use AWS CloudFormation to manage infrastructure alongside Chef.
Testing your Cookbooks
Using Test Kitchen and ChefSpec to improve cookbook quality.
