Better Tools for a Better Life: The best editor and debugger tools for your job

Presented by

Franklin Webber, Training and Technical Content Lead

About this talk

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.
