Chef Training


Chef is an infrastructure as code DevOps automation tool. Chef allows you to build reusable recipes to deploy in your environment. These recipes are known as tasks and are assigned to put your environment in a specific state. We use these tasks to install packages, update configuration files, and lots more!

In a typical installation, a team would commit code to their existing source control system. A continuous integration server would then compile the code and run unit tests. The last step of the build process would be to bundle the binaries, content files and configuration files into a package that is ready to be deployed. Octopus is then designed to deploy this package, and promote it between environments. For packaging applications, Octopus Deploy uses the NuGet package file format from Microsoft.
