What the attendees will learn

A break-fix challenge is the best way to get your hands on OpenShift because it is really immersive and it also allows attendees to follow their own path as their own speed. Speakers will provide methods to check progress and to update so everybody can be at the same level if needed.

Have you ever considered running an OpenShift cluster? Are you scared by the complexity? Join us in this participative workshop to break and fix some stuff to gain the confidence you need. Attendees will work on teams of up to 4 members, and will start with a non-working Openshift cluster and the final target will be to run a provided containerized web application after we solve several small and related issues. Hints will be provided every few minutes and there will be a mechanism to check current progress of the challenge. Attendees will learn some troubleshooting techniques and experience how to solve some of the most common OpenShift operational and development problems by working on teams. Attendees should have some basic knowledge about OpenShift.



Workshop plan

Attendees will have access to an online OpenShift environment with some modifications that will prevent any application to build. Attendees will form teams of up to 4 members. Speakers will be providing hints and there will be methods to check current progress and to directly reach certain level. There will be 6 levels divided into Operations and Development.

As Seniors Software Maintenance Engineers at Red Hat we have worked in hundreds of support cases and seen what are the most common issues with OpenShift.
