Couch to OpenStack - Understanding Where to Start Your Learning Journey

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Regardless of your background, OpenStack is a fundamental shift from the way that traditional virtualization and bare-metal deployments are built and operated.  Just like with learning to run in a Couch-to-5k clinic, this is your coaching team to help you get from zero to hero on OpenStack!


Attendees will get a walk through of the learning program and be given resources to spin up a demo environment on their own machines using Vagrant and VirtualBox.  



Knowing where to start is as important as knowing how to start.  This will be a very interactive session to help encourage attendees to get help with starting their journeys to becoming OpenStack operators.
