A Taste of Chef on Azure from Alex Manly and John Fitzpatrick at NorDevCon

The ’Taste of Chef on Azure Workshop’ is a hands on coding session aimed at technical practitioners who want to learn to do more on the Azure platform with Chef. Participants will write recipes that describe system configuration policies, use Chef Provisioning to create new instances, automatically apply recipes and use Chef Provisioning to create a sample full-stack application topology that includes additional Azure services.

The workshop provides an introduction to Chef with a specific focus on Azure integration, and the course is intended to answer common beginner questions about using Chef, managing Azure infrastructure within the Chef framework and guide students through basic deployment scenarios.
