Training courses and descriptions are outlined below.  You must select one of the training courses on your registration form.  More information on registering for the conference can be found here.

Course 1 - Cloud Foundry for Beginners: from Zero to Hero

Join us for a hands-on training workshop to learn about deploying and managing applications on Cloud Foundry. We will give an overview of Cloud Foundry and how it works, including specifics relating to services, buildpacks, and architecture. We will also look at how to effectively work with Cloud Foundry in your organisation. 

This training is targeted at people with little or no Cloud Foundry experience but some experience delivering web-based applications. If you're curious to learn how Cloud Foundry can help you focus on development and innovation, rather than infrastructure plumbing, this is the right course for you.

System Requirements:

  • Linux 32/64bit, Windows 32/64bit or OS X 64bit
  • 1GB of FREE RAM
  • USB port for mounting the USB drive with course material
  • a code editor of choice
  • Git 1.8+ (check with 'git version')

Course 2 - Microservices on Cloud Foundry: Going Cloud Native

This course is designed to give its students a hands on experience of designing applications for Cloud Foundry. We will give an overview of Cloud Foundry and its tools from the point of view of an application developer and how to architect polyglot applications for deployment and scaling in the cloud. 

This training is targeted at developers with little hands-on Cloud Foundry experience and those who have an interest in deploying innovative, microservice-based systems into the cloud. 

System Requirements:

  • Linux 32/64bit, Windows 32/64bit or OS X 64bit
  • 1GB of FREE RAM
  • USB port for mounting the USB drive with course material
  • a code editor of choice
  • Git 1.8+ (check with 'git version')

  

Course 3 - Operating a Platform: BOSH and Everything Else

Have you ever wondered how to deploy and operate a platform that's designed to deploy and operate applications? Join us and find out how with a hands-on training workshop. We'll teach you how to deploy and manage the Cloud Foundry platform as well as the stateful data services that power cloud-native applications. We'll provide an operational overview of Cloud Foundry and data services, and how these can be deployed with the cluster orchestration tool, "BOSH".  

This training is targeted at people with little to no Cloud Foundry BOSH experience but who have some experience managing Linux-based systems. If you're curious to learn how BOSH can help you deploy and manage Cloud Foundry and other complex systems, this is the course for you.

System Requirements

  • Git 1.8+ (check with 'git version')
  • Vagrant 1.6.5+ (check with 'vagrant version')
  • VirtualBox 4.3.18+ (check with 'vboxmanage--version')
  • A SSH client (check with 'ssh-V')
  • USB port for mounting the USB drive with course material
  • a code editor of choice
  • 6GB of FREE RAM (this has been tested on machines with 16GB+)
