Learn to automate systems application and devices at scale with Chef
Chef is a leading tool in the devops arena which takes a declarative approach towards automating infrastructure. By allowing to describe the state of the infrastructure as a code, it brings in consistency in the way you configure environments as well as provides a visibility into the state of Infrastructure.
Chef is being used by variety of companies across the globe including Visa, Facebook, Yahoo, Intuit, Target, IBM, HP, Bloomberg etc. for automating systems, network devices, application deployments as well as building delivery pipelines, auditing and compliance purposes.
