Hands on with Habitat

by Nathen Harvey

Published February 8, 2017 in Technology

Chef recently announced a new open source framework for application automation, Habitat. We are embarking on a tour of cities around the world to provide you with hands-on experience with the project. The workshops are free to attend - we’d love for you to join us.

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. Find out more at habitat.sh.

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).
