About this event

New announcement: This event is FREE to attend. However, due to the popularity of this meetup, and also to ensure that those who register REALLY ATTEND IN PERSON, we have closed the meetup.com registration and created an EVENTBRITE registration page. You MUST register HERE to attend in person:  
Even if you have already registered and even if you are currently waitlisted, please go now and register on EventBrite to guarantee your spot! If you register AND you attend, this will also put you first in line for follow-up free trainings.


OpenStack Operations is being pulled into the container world with tools like Kolla and now Kolla-Kubernetes, and with that shift, it's important to have a solid understanding of the underlying container management domain.  

Join us as we explore the building blocks of a simple scaleable Kubernetes-based application, leveraging pods, replication controllers, and service controllers.  Bring your laptop, and follow along or just show up and gain better understanding of how operations can be better manged via container operating environments and how this applies to the OpenStack domain.

Because this is a workshop, classroom style, we will NOT be serving food/bev. We would like people to show up ready to engage and get down to business! :)  You are welcome to bring your own munchies if you would like. Heck... bring your own beer (and one to share). ;)
