  • Chef on Chef: Enabling culture through automation Chef on Chef: Enabling culture through automation Technical Evangelists: Jessica DeVita, Andre Elizondo, Seth Thomas Recorded: Oct 19 2016 55 mins
    Many companies want to break down the silos that separate different teams in their organization but find that the lack of a common approach to automation presents a formidable challenge. At Chef, we had that very problem when we realized that, to effectively demo our then unreleased product Chef Automate, we needed to automate its installation. The automation not only had to bring up a standard Chef Automate cluster, but it also had to make it easy for many different teams at Chef to layer on top of it so they could tailor the demo to their own purposes.

    In this webinar, Chef technical evangelists Jessica DeVita, Andre Elizondo, and Seth Thomas will discuss what folks at Chef learned about bringing different groups together to create something that everyone can use.They’ll talk about using tools besides Chef, leveraging test-driven development methods, and dogfooding through automation. You’ll also learn how the automation, nicknamed “wombat” is evolving, and why it’s important to implement pipelines early.

    Join us to hear about:
    - The lessons we learned while trying to enable a culture of automation within Chef
    - How avoiding orchestration solved several challenges (and presented new ones!)
    - The methods we used when building extendable automation

    Who should attend:
    - Systems administrators
    - DevOps engineers
    - Systems architects
  • Creating the next generation of DevOps Creating the next generation of DevOps Aaron Kalin, Caffeine Powered Server Fox, dnsimple.com Recorded: Oct 4 2016 48 mins
    It can be difficult to hire people with the exact skills you want or need for your DevOps team. Just look at the job boards! There’s tons of competition and not nearly enough people to meet the demand. With a total size of 8 employees, DNSimple decided to take a different approach by starting an apprenticeship program to train people with little to no experience in DevOps.

    In this webinar, Aaron Kalin of DNSimple goes over the lessons learned in budgeting, hiring, and onboarding their first ever apprentice along with why and how you might want to start a similar program at your company. Aaron will conclude with an update of where their apprentice is now and answer any questions you might have.

    Join us to learn:

    - Ways to change your hiring practices to be more inclusive and increase diversity
    - How to go about starting an apprenticeship program at your company and who is currently running programs
    - The benefits of having a DevOps apprenticeship program at your company
  • Modern Cookbook Design Modern Cookbook Design Kevin Dickerson, Loom Recorded: Sep 27 2016 54 mins
    If you’re a typical Chef user, you learned cookbook design by writing recipes and then tuning functionality with node attributes—and you probably didn’t focus too much on the underlying Ruby concepts. This approach can lead to messy designs that are more difficult to verify and maintain.

    Chef’s fundamental building blocks are resources, not recipes. In this webinar, Kevin Dickerson of Loom (a Chef Certified Partner), will demonstrate a resource-centric approach to designing and verifying cookbooks that can reduce defects, increase clarity, and provide greater isolation of logic and various configuration concerns.

    Kevin will show you how to create and use resources and resource properties instead of emulating resources with recipes. He’ll also teach you how to verify cookbooks, and how verification is simplified when a resource is only concerned with the conditions that affect its behavior.

    You’ll also be introduced to some Ruby concepts that don’t seem to get a lot of attention—after all, Chef cookbooks are written in Ruby.

  • Automated HIPAA Compliance: Powered by Cloudticity on AWS Automated HIPAA Compliance: Powered by Cloudticity on AWS Gerry Miller - Cloudticity, Joseph Fontes - AWS, Christoph Hartmann - Chef Recorded: Aug 2 2016 49 mins
    Healthcare organizations face increasing regulatory pressure to maintain compliance with HIPAA regulations, while also needing to significantly modernize their technology to comply with ACA, Meaningful Use, and other federal, state, and local requirements. At the same time, the Healthcare field has never had a better opportunity to increase personalized care, lower costs, and leverage technology for measurably better outcomes. Cloud computing offers nearly unlimited computing and storage capacity - but with great power comes great responsibility. The agility Healthcare is enjoying in the cloud comes with increased risk and exposure to security breaches due to lack of compliance with Healthcare regulations and industry best practices.

    Cloudticity's HIPAA Compliance as a Service, using Chef's automated compliance capabilities on AWS, is a fully automated software-as-a-service solution. In this webinar, you will see firsthand how Cloudticity has mapped Chef's compliance CIS profiles directly to HIPAA CFR regulations, providing a powerful automated solution to leverage the cloud's agility while minimizing risk.
  • Introduction to Habitat Introduction to Habitat George Miranda, Product Marketing Manager & Julian Dunn, Product Manager Recorded: Jun 29 2016 56 mins
    Habitat is an open-source framework that lets modern application teams build, deploy and manage their applications as portable artifacts that are independent of any particular infrastructure. Whether greenfield or legacy, applications that are packaged with Habitat have the intelligence to self-organize, self-configure and act autonomously. In other words, Habitat is automation that travels with the application.

    Habitat addresses the problem of growing complexity, both in the application itself and in its management. At Chef, we think that the problem can be traced to the facts that the infrastructure stack dictates the design of the application and that the application’s automation comes after the fact. Habitat takes the opposite view and puts the application front and center. When an application is wrapped in a Habitat package, it has everything it needs to run in any environment, throughout its lifecycle.

    This webinar will review some of the lessons we’ve learned from automating infrastructure and show you how to apply those successful patterns to application automation. You will learn how, with Habitat, application teams can defer decisions about the runtime until they are ready to deploy. Let Habitat handle application management, and concentrate on creating new features and services that delight customers.

  • Better Tools for a Better Life: The best editor and debugger tools for your job Better Tools for a Better Life: The best editor and debugger tools for your job Franklin Webber, Training and Technical Content Lead Recorded: May 26 2016 61 mins
    The infrastructure you manage with Chef is a complex machine. This complexity is mirrored in the cookbooks you develop and the data stored in your Chef server. It is an ongoing effort to keep track of the state of that machine and to keep up with all the functionality included in your (many) cookbooks. However, the right tools can help. With them, you can develop code faster, maintain cleaner code, and better understand your existing code.

    In this webinar, Franklin Webber, Training and Technical Content Lead at Chef, will demonstrate how better editor and debugger tools can improve your work life. He’ll show you how the right text editor can make it easier to write code. Next, he’ll demonstrate how tools like Rake and Guard can consolidate tasks and automate tests. Finally, he’ll show you how Pry can help you to debug your recipes.
