Free Online Self-Paced Workshop Updated to OpenShift Container Platform 3.7

free online self-paced workshop
Last summer it was announced that a series of free online workshops were available for your enjoyment.

One of these is an AppDev in the Cloud workshop, focusing on real application deployment using six containers and agile integration on OpenShift Container Platform 3.6.

Not wanting to stand still with the latest release of OpenShift Container Platform 3.7, the entire workshop has been updated.  There is now a track for using version 3.6 or version 3.7, your choice!

Let's look a little closer at what the workshop has in store for you, shall we?



Open technology for everyone

The workshop is based on open technologies, is hosted with instructions on line in HTML format and can be completed in a self-paced tempo.

The workshop showcases only enterprise grade open source products. Everything needed to complete these workshops is available for download online too, so nothing you need to purchase.

It's also possible to schedule this workshop to be guided by myself for your team, a meetup or a user group. Contact me for details or to schedule a date.

AppDev in the Cloud

Here it's showcasing application development in the Cloud leveraging containers. Technologies like containers, Java, PHP, .NET, business rules, services, container platforms, integration, container integration and much more are presented for a hands-on experience.

This workshop has you taking on the role of lead developer of the Destinasia travel discount project to set up a development environment in the Cloud for container-based application services deployments.

Once it's set up, you're validating the services using end-to-end testing.

Tasks include installing OpenShift Container Platform 3.7, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP), JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS), several containerized web services and testing the solution using a REST client.

You'll need a laptop with minimum of 8GB of memory and Internet access for downloading some of the requirements.
