Opscode instructors will be presenting a free morning of introductory Chef training, transitioning to an afternoon Hack Day for Chef users of all skill levels. The morning session will cover Chef fundamentals; introducing new users to concepts and how to get started with Chef. Bring your workstation (please see requirements below) and after lunch, we'll help the new users explore hands-on introductory materials while inviting anyone who wants to come talk about Chef and hack on cookbooks or anything else, join in!
Attendees should bring a wifi-enabled laptop to the workshop. The following operating systems have been tested as workstation systems with the hands on exercises:
Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04
Mac OS X 10.7.3
Other platforms and platform versions may work without modification. Due to time constraints we will not be able to troubleshoot issues with unlisted platforms.
Attendees should install non-Chef required software before the workshop starts.
SSH/SCP (OpenSSH, puTTY/WinSCP or equivalent)
Programer's text editor (Vi/Vim, Emacs, Sublime Text 2 or equivalent)
On Unix/Linux/OS X systems:
C/C++ compiler, build environment (build-essential, Xcode, or platform equivalent).
If Chef is not already installed, use Opscode's Full Stack Chef installer.
