About the Remote DevEx Workshop 
Join us for a virtual OpenShift Developer Experience (DevEx) workshop. This interactive, hands-on workshop is designed to provide developer centric information in a practical and consumable manner. The workshop will interweave development and essential administration aspects of OpenShift 4 from a pragmatic and software-production perspective. 
Who Should Join 
Anyone who has an interest in developing containerised cloud-native applications. OpenShift is available on Amazon, Azure, Google Cloud, Red Hat OpenStack, IBM Cloud, on-premise platforms and many more environments, providing those organisations that require a multi-cloud strategy with a consistent experience for their developers and administrators. 
  • Access to the Red Hat OpenShift cluster which will be provided by Red Hat. This requires internet access, supported browsers include Firefox (71+), Google Chrome (78+), Safari (13+) and Microsoft Edge (40+). 
  • Access to the web meeting facility BlueJeans so participants can see the workshop instructors' screen. A bi-directional audio facility is required to ensure that participants and the workshop instructor can discuss questions.
  • If screen sharing is possible, and allowed, this will prove helpful when resolving any issues during the workshop.
