Habitat Workshop



An awesome workshop showing off how Habitat solves common application deployment and management issues.


During the Habitat Workshop we will start with a deep dive into the components that make up Habitat and learn all about what it takes to create a Habitat Artifact that is runtime agnostic. You will then be exposed to a few demos showing off some of Habitat’s awesome features. We’ll then create a Habitat artifact live and see how it all comes together!
