Begin Your DevSecOps Journey on Learn Chef

For some time now, Learn Chef has been the destination of choice for IT ops practitioners to learn how to expand their DevOps skill sets. Whether it be learning about securing your infrastructure, managing a fleet of IT resources, or consistently delivering applications, Learn Chef has you covered.

But what about folks who are new to DevOps and DevSecOps (not to mention new to the extensive Chef portfolio)? Diving straight into these topics can be intimidating without the proper context.

This is why we are happy to announce the release of another new course on Learn Chef! Beginning Your Chef Journey.

So What’s in the Course?

This new Learn Chef course was crafted for those of you who are new to the Chef line of products and services. The course will help you to:

  • Define IT automation and how it can benefit you and your organization;
  • Explain what the Chef automation products and solutions do;
  • Understand where Chef fits into DevSecOps;
  • Learn more about some of Chef’s best-known customers (check some out below! 🧐);

Here are just some of the organizations already invested in Chef:

In addition you’ll get a brief intro to what DevOps even is, how it relates to DevSecOps, and where Chef fits into the IT operations puzzle. Finally, we provide some insight into open source at Chef. Case in point, did you know the following Chef tools are fully open source and consist of one or more open source projects?

  • Chef Infra
  • Chef InSpec
  • Chef Habitat
  • Chef Workstation
  • Chef Automate

TIP: You can view all of our open source projects on GitHub.

We ❤️ open source here at Chef!
