What you will learn in this training

This training is the follow up of the Chef Essentials and Chef Intermediate training and gives you a deep inside knowledge of it.

Where the first two training courses concentrated more on the actual development of configuration code and applying it to the infrastructure, this training will take a deeper look at the bigger picture of using Chef in a modern professional IT environment. You will learn how to optimize your Chef workflow, collaborate as a team and stay secure.

A lot of best-practise examples and hands-on exercises enable you to put everything you will learn into practice.
