Explore the concept of environment in Chef and the various attributes that can be applied for DevOps—Chef Habitat and Chef Automate. In this 14-video course, learners examine the components used to build templates in Chef, as well as to generate Chef cookbooks, install and work with Test Kitchen, and install and work with Chef Habitat Builder. Key concepts covered in this course include how to generate Chef cookbooks and configure Knife; bootstrap a node to pull and apply configuration changes; recognize the essential features of Chef Habitat and illustrate the package build flow, from automated build to package deployment; and exploring Chef templates and the components that can be used to build them. Then you will learn how to create recipes by using template files; learn the features and capabilities provided by Chef Automate for infrastructure automation and orchestration, and work with Chef Automate to facilitate infrastructure automation and orchestration. Finally, examine scenarios where Chef may not be the best candidate for configuration management and implement automated deployment of Chef Habitat packages.
