Effortless Learning with Learn Chef Rally

Hi there, Chef Friends!

As you know, the best place to learn all aspects of Chef – from Chef Infra, to Chef Habitat, and Chef InSpec – is Learn Chef Rally! With modules and tracks to fit all skill levels and a “choose-your-own-adventure” style of learning, Learn Chef Rally is the only place to learn everything Chef at your own pace.

And we are always adding more. Here are some exciting updates to Learn Chef that we wanted to make sure you knew about. 

What’s New?

You may have read the recent blog post, Chef Announcements: Making It Easy, or perhaps you saw the Effortless Infrastructure information on chef.io, but if not, know that we are constantly adding new content. I would encourage getting familiar with the new success patterns for Chef, and then heading over to Learn Chef Rally and trying out the new “Effortless” modules and much, much more.

Effortless Config – Effortless Config combines Chef’s best practices for using Chef Habitat and Chef Infra to manage the configuration of your infrastructure in a coded enterprise. In this module, you will learn to use Chef Habitat to deploy your Chef Infra cookbooks and chef-client.

Effortless Audit – Effortless Audit combines Chef’s best practices for using Chef Habitat and Chef InSpec to perform compliance audits of your infrastructure in a coded enterprise. In this module, you will learn to use Chef Habitat to run your Chef InSpec profiles.

Both of these modules can be found in the Quickstarts track in Learn Chef Rally!

Content Updates 

Last March we shared the news that the practice of using Policyfiles was now covered on Learn Chef Rally. Now, in addition to the two existing modules and video, you can watch Intro to Policyfiles Part 2, Push and Bootstrap.  In this video, Kimball Johnson extends your understanding and readies you to deep dive into the Policyfile learning modules, Getting Started with Policyfiles and Managing Nodes with Policyfiles.

During July, we are putting the focus on how Chef can help you make your infrastructure more secure. We have put together Chef Effortless Infrastructure and Cloud Security a page that consolidates the content that you need to translate infrastructure configuration and security compliance policies into code.

Swag! Swag! Swag!

When you go to Learn Chef Rally make sure to create an account!. Not only will you be able to track your progress and earn fun badges, but you’ll also be eligible to receive very cool Learn Chef Rally swag. We want you to have fun while learning the skills and knowledge you need to be a successful Chef! 

 

Be on the lookout for even more additions to the Learn Chef Rally Experience!

And as usual, Happy Automating!
