Linux Academy partners with Chef!

We’ve Partnered with Chef!

We’re so excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Chef to provide high-quality, in-depth training to those of you interested in becoming Certified Chef Developers!

If you visit linuxacademy.com/cheftraining, you can get started on the Basic Chef Fluency Course, which will provide a hands-on experience for managing Chef. It will prepare you for the Basic Chef Fluency Badge exam – you’ll even get a coupon code for the exam! If that’s not enough Chef content for you, we’ve also got a Local Cookbook Development course with an anticipated release date of March 2017.

For more information, see Chef’s blog post here.

New Features!

Our developers and instructors have been working away at bringing you new courses and features here at Linux Academy! Here’s some of the content we released last week:
