The Automation Tools Bootcamp is a tutorial for individuals looking for exposure to and usage of new IT automation tools. We will learn about and then use Vagrant, Chef, Packer, Docker, Terraform, and Artifactory to deploy a small application in local VMs.
We will cover a progression of tasks, leveraging information from previous sections to deploy a small app that runs identically on your local development machine or on a shared server. Get rid of the “it works for me” mentality when you know your local VM is identical to your co-workers' and your shared environments.
Operations, QA, those who choose to call themselves DevOps, and even managers can come learn.
These automation tools are freely available to engineers, enabling them to safely break local environments until the change in configuration has been perfected. Basic exposure to these tools will allow attendees to return to work with new ways to tackle the problems they face daily.
