  • Writing code (of just about any flavor) in a text editor
  • Working on the command line

Basic system administration – installing packages, configuring those packages, starting service
 

Computer Labs Needed/Technical Specs:

Workstation Requirements:

Students should bring laptops to class. If you do not have a laptop to bring with you, ASPE can arrange to provide one for you for a small fee. The following operating systems have been tested as workstation systems with hands-on exercises:

  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04
  • Mac OS X 10.7.3+
  • Windows 7/8/10

Other platforms and platform versions may work without modification. Due to time constraints, we will not be able to troubleshoot issues with unlisted platforms. Attendees should install non-Chef required software before the workshop starts.

  • SSH/SCP (OpenSSH, puTTY/WinSCP or equivalent)
  • Programer's text editor (Vi/Vim, Emacs, Sublime Text 2 or equivalent)
  • Additionally, all attendees should install ChefDK
     

Additionally, although it is not mandatory, students who have completed the self-paced Fundamentals of DevOps eLearning course have found it very helpful when completing this course.
