In this Introduction to Habitat workshop, we will give an overview of the powerful features included in the Habitat project. We will build an application in the Habitat Studio, publish and promote new versions of an application, and push configuration changes and application updates in real time. Participants should come prepared with a laptop and an ssh client. Familiarity with a text editor such as vim or nano will be needed.
