The Chef Essentials course provides a basic understanding of Chef's core components, basic architecture, commonly used tools, and basic troubleshooting methods.

Learn the basics of Chef by taking Chef Essentials.

Each of the core units includes hands-on exercises that will give you confidence in your new skills. At the end of the course, you'll come away with a repo and the skills to start automating your own infrastructure.
