Chef Automate Compliance
In the instructor-led Chef Automate compliance course, you will learn how to use the Chef Automate compliance UI, perform compliance scans against Windows and Linux nodes, and remediate compliance issues.
In addition, you will learn how to use InSpec, Chef’s open source testing framework for infrastructure. You will create and modify compliance profiles and you will also learn how to use the Chef audit cookbook, which allows you to run InSpec compliance profiles as part of the chef-client run.
Chef Intermediate Topics
Chef Intermediate Topics is an instructor-led course that first introduces you to test-driven development (TDD) and then shows you how to extend your cookbooks with custom resources and Ohai plugins.
Building cookbooks with tests will increase the speed at which you work by giving you consistent feedback throughout the entire cookbook development process. Extending your cookbooks with custom resources will increase clarity within your recipes and provide resources that are portable to other cookbooks. Ohai plugins gather data from your nodes that will aid in more dynamic recipes and extensive reporting.
In this course you’ll learn how Habitat builds applications and their dependencies into truly immutable, portable and platform-independent artifacts that contain everything they need to run. You will learn key Habitat concepts, including the details of the Habitat plan.sh file, the use of Habitat studio and Builder, the core functions of the Supervisor, and more. It starts off by explaining the fundamental concepts of Habitat, and then gets increasingly technical as we progress through the class. The majority of the training is conducted through hands-on lab exercises using real examples.
Chef Foundations – Linux & Windows
During this three-day command-line driven adventure, you will develop a solid foundation for managing dozens, hundreds or even thousands of servers the way many other successful companies do – by using Chef. And because so many companies have both Windows and Linux servers in their environments, we teach you the technical intricacies of managing and integrating both platforms. This is the recommended starting point for all who are new to Chef Software.
