Chef: Container Automation with Habitat

Containers provide a delightful development experience. It’s easy to download a container image and get started writing code. But it’s a different story when you have to run containers in production at scale. That’s when all the hidden complexities become apparent and the real challenges begin. What tools are you going to use to build, deploy, run, and manage your containerized applications? How are you going to manage difference between environments like staging and production with a fleet of immutable objects? How will you effectively scale containerized applications once you’ve deployed them?

Habitat, our open-source project for application automation, simplifies container management by packaging applications in a compact, atomic, and easily auditable format that makes it easier to deploy your application on various container runtimes. Once your applications are deployed, the Habitat supervisor simplifies the complexities of running in production environments with built-in abstractions for functions typically handled by external tooling, such as dynamic scaling and rolling updates.

Join us for this workshop to learn how Habitat can help you overcome these obstacles as you look to implement container based solutions. Attendees will learn about Habitat's container build system, how to package and application with Habitat, and how to run this packaged application leveraging Habitat's service supervisor.
