Learn Chef – now with tracks for Windows Server and Ubuntu!

Today we released a refresh to the Learn Chef website. Here are some of the top highlights:

  • Tracks for Windows Server and Ubuntu, along with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) & CentOS to help you learn in the server environment you’re most familiar with.
  • A more streamlined virtual machine experience to get you experiencing Chef in action faster than ever.
  • General improvements to the site, including terminal and code windows that are easier to work with and match your browser’s OS.

The tracks teach you similar concepts, but each is tailored for the specific platform. Try all three to see the differences or learn something new!


We’re cooking up an even better virtual machine experience as well as more tutorials that take you further. Stay tuned for updates!

We also want to hear from you. We’d love your feedback on the site’s responsiveness and how well it teaches the concepts. Leave your comments here, on the tutorial pages directly, or email us.

Try it today!
