Getting Started with CFEngine: Basic Concepts and Q&A
Thursday, July 10, 2014 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM (SGT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
From high-level system architecture to the anatomy of writing a promise, our Getting Started webinar will help you in quickly getting productive with CFEngine. We will cover basic terms (Promises, Bundles, Bodies, and Classes) and language concepts, common promise types and attributes, and syntax. We will also touch on the use of Design Center sketches and the GUI features of CFEngine Enterprise.
Vertical Sysadmin delivers high quality hands-on training on excellent technologies. We provide both public and private trainings.
Our target audience is new and experienced system administrators and software engineers.
Our product is full conceptual understanding and ability to apply the material.
Our training model is simple and it is very effective:
- in-person training
- by a recognized expert in the field
- in a small class (never more than 12 students)
- with personal attention to every student's progress
- using material carefully laid out in logical sequence from basic to advanced
- with every technical term meticulously defined
- hands-on: 1/3 to 1/2 of each class is practical exercises
- highly interactive: students are encouraged to participate in the class.
Our results speak for themselves:
"Aleksey (trainer) was one of the best hands-on teachers I've experienced in a long time. He is very knowledgeable about the subject, patient and keeps the class focused. His course materials including documentation, examples and exercises were very comprehensive."
-- Paul Connally, IT Systems Administrator, PDX, Inc.
"All concepts were presented clearly with working examples of each. Pacing was excellent as well as personal attention paid to each student."
-- Charles Farinella, Systems Administrator, Appropriate Solutions, Inc.
"I asked to bring Aleksey back not just because of his deep knowledge of CFEngine, but more because of his personal attention to each student and his tenacity in ensuring that all students understand the material before moving on. He brings an adequate supply of further exercises to keep the remaining students working while he works with someone who's having particular problems, and is a stickler for staying on the schedule, which I really appreciate".
-- Danny from a Fortune 50 Financial Company
"It was more in-depth and intensive than most of the vendor training things I've gone to. Good attention to detail and making sure all points were understood."
-- Michael Stevens
"Very personal approach to teaching. We are bored to death with power point slides. Most of the class was hands on."
-- Prakash Rudraraju
"The balance between theoretical and practical knowledge is just perfect. No bullshit."
-- Bernard Brandl
"Thank you for such a great class. Been to lots of technical training and you are the best instructor I've had. Beyond standard lecture/lab your examples and willingness to help with non-class related questions pertaining to CFEngine is unmatched."
-- Thomas Nicholson, Sr. Systems Management Engineer
