My latest Pluralsight course has just gone live – Getting Productive with Chef Cookbooks.
Check it out at www.pluralsight.com/courses/chef-cookbooks-getting-productive.
This is my second course for Pluralsight and the second course on Chef – it builds on the lab environment developed in the first course, called Planning and Installing Chef, which you can access at www.pluralsight.com/courses/chef-planning-installing.
Writing and presenting on Chef software has been a really interesting experience. Chef encourages you to change the way you think about infrastructure – for more focus on desired outcomes rather than the methods and processes to get there.
In the course, we take a couple of unconfigured servers – one running Windows Server 2012 R2 and the other running Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (both running in Azure) and use Chef to turn them in to multi-tiered web servers hosting a live web application.
Enjoy the course!
