Learning at ChefConf 2019

One of the many reasons to attend ChefConf 2019 is the lineup of learning opportunities that will be available to improve your knowledge of Infrastructure, Compliance and Application Automation. In addition to the dozens of breakout sessions, we’re offering 11 full-day workshops at a crazy, low price with topics for all experience levels. You’ll also have an opportunity to work with the Chef training team to prepare to successfully pass one or more of the Chef certification exams.
