Feedback form is now closed.
Habitat is a simple, flexible way to build, deploy, and manage cloud native and modern, distributed applications.  Habitat centers application configuration, management, and behavior around the application itself, not the infrastructure that the application runs on.  It provides automation that can programmatically and declaratively build, deploy, and manage applications and services, both stateful and stateless.  Each Habitat application can be deployed and run on various infrastructure environments including bare metal, VM, containers, and PaaS.

This workshop provides a quick introduction to Habitat during which participants will build, deploy, and run a multi-tier application as a way to explore some of Habitat's application automation features.

Find more about Habitat at [habitat.sh](https://www.habitat.sh/).

Participants should bring a wifi-enabled laptop to the workshop. Participants will be given a remote workstation with all prerequisites installed. The only thing required to access these workstations will be an SSH client (PuTTY on Windows) and familiarity with a interactive text editor (Vi/Vim, Emacs, or Nano).

It is best that participants of this workshop have some familiarity and comfort with the following:

* Writing code (of just about any flavor) in a text editor
* Working on the command line
* Basic system administration – installing packages, configuring those packages, starting service
