Red Hat Student Education Programme

July 25, 2022 (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time : Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London , Online

Course overview

UK companies currently struggle to recruit people with skills in Kubernetes and cloud-native development. Red Hat UK would like to invite UK and Ireland 2022 computing graduates to a Kubernetes Bootcamp this summer, in order to grow your skills and give you a head-start on employment in Kubernetes related roles.

Through a two-week program of lectures, hands-on workshops and Q&A activities, we will take you through all aspects of creating and running cloud-native applications on the Red Hat OpenShift platform. The course will begin with an introduction to containerised applications; how they run and how to create them. We will then progress through build and deployment automation, scaling, health management, role-based access control, DevOps and GitOps approaches. We will end the course with innovative technologies including service mesh for communication resilience, serverless and function-based applications and Quarkus, for lightning fast and low resource consumption Java applications.

Each minute of lecture time is matched by hands-on workshops. All you need to participate is a laptop with internet access and an enthusiasm to learn about the platform. All content and workshops will be delivered virtually.

This is a great opportunity to gain knowledge and hands-on experience with Red Hat OpenShift and, of course, bag some Red Hat swag. Register here today, further details of each module of the course will be sent with your welcome pack shortly after registration.
