Rancher Rodeos are free, in-depth workshops designed to give DevOps and IT teams the hands-on skills they need to deploy and manage Kubernetes everywhere. The content will be delivered by Rancher's technical experts and aim to educate anyone interested in learning how to use containers or Kubernetes.

During these hands-on workshops, one of our technical experts will provide an introduction to Rancher, Docker, and Kubernetes and then walk through the steps for deploying a Kubernetes cluster. The key topics that will be covered at the Rancher Rodeos include:

Docker and Kubernetes Concepts and Architecture
Installation and Configuration of Rancher Server
Kubernetes Cluster Deployment
Application Deployment and Access

What To Bring

Your Laptop and a place to deploy machines
To deploy machines locally, you will need to have Vagrant installed and have 6G of free RAM on your laptop
Alternatively, if you wish to use a cloud provider, you will need to have access, permissions, and familiarity with launching instances. You are responsible for all external cloud provider costs
