Opscode adds training but will anyone care?

While this is a next logical step I feel that they need to focus on getting 8.0 out before they even start to worry about training. I have held off on suggesting chef to a lot of people due to tall the change coming in 8.0.

So as you can see I have enjoyed Opscodes chef a lot but now I see they added training. While this is a next logical step I feel that they need to focus on getting 8.0 out before they even start to worry about training. I have held off on suggesting chef to a lot of people due to tall the change coming in 8.0. As a user or almost 8 months now I feel the changes are so extreme that its not worth starting with chef at this point. While the recipes an basic stuff your pushing out will move forward a lot of logic changes happen in 8.0. First there is the new databags that will allow you to rethink how you use shared data. Then there is the joy of roles in roles, which I love by the way. Why these are really minor changes I hate to think about going over all my roles and recipes and reworking them for 8.0. Not because you have to but more because I like to have a common pattern in execution and I assure you that I will be using these new features in new additions to my chef tool kit. O then there is knife … umm yea world changer there. So in summary hold off on training opscode and get 8.0 out the door.
