The team from Chef is on the road helping people learn about Chef for Windows & Habitat.  We will be in Singapore for a Hands-on with Chef and Hands-on with Habitat workshop.  We would love to catch-up with you to hear about your continuous automation efforts while we are in town, too.

What is Habitat?
Habitat is Chef’s open-source project for application automation.  It simplifies container management by packaging applications in a compact, atomic, and easily auditable format that makes it easier to deploy your application on various container runtimes.  It also helps you run stateful application services (think Redis, Mongo, etc) on cloud instances, VMs, or bare metal.

Learn the basics of Chef for Windows. PowerShell and Desired State Configuration. Chef has made Windows easier to manage, at scale and in heterogeneous environments and provides a standardized cross-platform abstraction focused on configuration management – this is why Chef is popular with Windows users! You’ll learn what it means to turn infrastructure into code so that you can automate the configuration, deployment and management of your servers. You’ll also learn about Chef architecture and the set of tools included in the Chef Development Kit (ChefDK). Finally, we’ll show you how to test your infrastructure code so that you can deploy with confidence.

This will be a hands-on workshop aimed at anyone involved in building, deploying, or managing applications.  You may be a developer or may come from an infrastructure background. You may currently be working with container technology or a microservices architecture (or planning to).  Habitat helps simplify the processes required to build, deploy, and manage your applications and, if you’re already using containers, even makes containers more awesome.
