Cloud Foundry for Beginners: from Zero to Hero

Cost: $475 per person

The Workshop

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 organization.

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.

Requirements

  • Linux, Windows or OS X (all 64bit)
  • 1GB of FREE RAM
  • Ability to install software
  • Code editor of choice
  • Pivotal Web Services account or ability to create one (see https://run.pivotal.io/ )
  • “Curl” utility (for Windows: https://curl.haxx.se/download.html)

Attendees must be proficient in English to participate in the training course.


Microservices on Cloud Foundry: Going Cloud Native

Cost: $475 per person

The Workshop

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.

Requirements

  • Linux, Windows or OS X (all 64bit)
  • 1GB of FREE RAM
  • Ability to install software
  • Code editor of choice
  • Pivotal Web Services account or ability to create one (see https://run.pivotal.io/)

Attendees must be proficient in English to participate in the training course.


Operating a Platform: BOSH and Everything Else

Cost: $475 per person

The Workshop

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.

Requirements

There are two ways to complete this class:

  • Preferred: On a VM on Amazon Web Services.
  • Unsupported but possible: On your laptop provided you have sufficient resources and permissions.

In either case you MUST have a laptop and be able to install software on it.

Preferred: On AWS

  • Laptop Requirements
    • You MUST be able to install software on your laptop
    • You must have an SSH program
  • AWS Requirements
    • You must bring your own AWS account.  Additionally, please ensure the following:

    • An AWS Keypair tied to account that has the ability to create:
      • Elastic IPs
      • Security groups
      • (1) m3.xLarge instance

Not supported but possible: On your Laptop

  • Laptop Requirements
    • Make sure your machine has at least 8GB RAM, and 100GB free disk space.  Small configurations may work, but significantly smaller configurations will certainly fail.
    • You MUST be able to install software on your laptop.
    • You must have a command line SSH tool.
  • Required Software – Please install the following before coming to class.
