Course 1Devops for the Java developer - a gentle introduction to Chef
AbstractThe days of toss-it-over-the-wall releases are becoming a thing of the past for many teams, and Java developers are increasingly responsible for the production deployment of their apps. In this talk, I'll explore this trend and give an overview of the most popular devops tools for managing infrastructure, focusing on my personal favorite, Chef. I'll cover the basics of Chef, and show how I've used Chef to manage large Java deployments in the cloud.
