Documentation on how to bootstrap Chef Infra Client for each Cloud Provider

Currently, there are no Chef maintained examples of how to bootstrap the Chef Infra Client onto different cloud providers. It would be great to have Chef maintained documentation surrounding this as it's the primary starting point for the Chef Infra Client to be installed into a new system for most users.

For example, if we had an example of bootstrapping using Environments, Runlists, Policyfiles for:

Azure ARM Templates
AWS CloudFormation
IBM Cloud
Digital Ocean
