Event description

Description

Rancher Rodeos are free, in-depth workshops designed to give DevOps and IT teams the hands-on skills they need to deploy and manage Kubernetes everywhere. The content will be delivered by Rancher's technical experts and aim to educate anyone interested in learning how to use containers or Kubernetes.


During these hands-on workshops, one of our technical experts will provide an introduction to Rancher, Docker, and Kubernetes and then walk through the steps for deploying a Kubernetes cluster. The key topics that will be covered at the Rancher Rodeos include:

  • Docker and Kubernetes Concepts and Architecture
  • Installation and Configuration of Rancher Server
  • Kubernetes Cluster Deployment
  • Application Deployment and Access


What To Bring

  • Your Laptop and a place to deploy machines
  • To deploy machines locally, you will need to have Vagrant installed and have 6G of free RAM on your laptop
