OpenShift Hand's on Technical Workshop in Toronto

  • Arctiq Downtown, Toronto Canada (map)

Arctiq is happy to be hosting a private technical workshop focused on containers and microservices, code automation and utilizing OpenShift.

Develop, Host, and Scale Your Apps using OpenShift

This workshop will be a small group and is recommended for developers, operations and technical architects who are interested in learning more about PaaS, containers, microservices and the OpenShift Container Platform.

Workshop Goal
Following this workshop, developers and infrastructure operations technologists will be self-sufficient and gain technical knowledge in OpenShift for application deployment and development.

  • Learn the OpenShift Container Platform (built on Docker and Kubernetes)
  • Understand how applications run as containers
  • Learn techniques to build and deploy applications using source code, dockerfile, and binaries including pipeline automation and enabling continuous delivery.
  • Deploy multi-tiered applications from source code and secure container registries.
  • Techniques for zero downtime deployments and auto scaling your applications.

Veer Muchandi is visiting Toronto and is a Principal Architect with Red Hat. He is a technology evangelist for Containers, PaaS and DevOps. Veer conducts education sessions, technology deep dives, workshops, and proof of concepts or whatever it takes to enable customer adoption of these emerging technologies. He is a well-known blogger, speaker, and an open source enthusiast.

Setting up the client workstation, accessing a share OCP environment (~30 min)

  • Note, client software should be downloaded in advance. Specific instructions will be provided prior to the workshop.
  • Setting up "oc" on the workstation to use OSE environment.
  • We will also explain and utilize OpenShift CDK
  • Arctiq will provide a shared OCP environment for lab activities
