Chef Training & Certification
Local Cookbook Development Badge
The Local Cookbook Development exam has been updated. You will be able to choose Windows or Linux environments for your lab questions and both the labs and multiple choice questions are now combined into one exam.
Earning this badge demonstrates your ability to properly develop a basic Chef cookbook. You know how to take an existing process and automate it with Chef recipes and you understand data-driven and modular composable cookbook patterns. You know how to fully validate your cookbook's functionality before attempting to release it/run it on real infrastructure. Given an existing problem set and non-automated solution, you know how to use Chef to model an automated approach that meets the solution requirements by composing a recipe, packaging it in a cookbook, testing it, and verifying intent.

Even though I've been using Chef for three years, I found this class immensely useful; not only did it allow me to examine and compare my current practices to those presented in the training, but I learned several new techniques for using Chef tools.
I will recommend this class to my organization as one of the more complete solutions to on boarding new Chef users.
The lab setups are excellent and allow the class to focus on the training objectives. It was a great way to get hands on experience with Compliance in one day.
Excellent information presented by an experienced practitioner and an excellent presenter.
I was sad to have the training end! The personalized attention from the instructor was priceless. Chef made sense and I LOVED it! Every question and problem were solved and explained. Truly craft masters of Chef, take this and be ready to be amazed. I'm applying what I learned the next week after the course. Thank you CHEF!
Class was excellent, and the Instructor was even better! Robin Beck is the best!
This was the best training class I've taken. It was online using Zoom, it was super easy to share code and collaborate. The instructor kept everything going at a perfect pace and his knowledge and expertise on the topic was evident. 22 years of training in my career and this was hands down the best class I've taken. Better than classroom training. Looking forward to more!
