“CentOS Dojos are a one day event that bring together people from the CentOS communities to talk about systems administration, best practises, and emerging technologies.”
At this particular Dojo we have this great lineup of information, discussion, and getting things done:
- Jim Perrin (@BitIntegrity) will start the day with a few minutes about the CentOS Project and do some introductions around the room.
- Garrett Honeycutt (@learnpuppet) goes next with a session, “Why Automation is Important” that covers topics such as configuration management with Puppet, Ansible, et al.
- Dmitri Pal from the FreeIPA project will discuss “Active Directory Integration”, a popular topic for many sysadmins and ops people stuck with a mixed-in-with-Windows environment.
- Greg Sheremeta (@gregsheremeta) of the oVirt project finishes with a tutorial on using the oVirt all-in-one installer. oVirt is virtualization management around KVM (cf. VMWare vSphere) with a growing userbase.
- Then a sponsored lunch and time to network with your fellow Dojo attendees.
- After lunch until the evening is a hackfest focusing on building and using Docker, building Xen components for CentOS 6, and whatever else gets cooked up. The CentOS team will be bringing a local mirror and WiFi for connecting on a private LAN for the hackfest. You can bring your laptop, ideas, and skills.
