Get Started with OpenShift Workshop

June 6, 2023 | Red Hat UK Ltd, Peninsular House, London


Containers are a more lightweight and portable option compared to virtual machines. Allowing our development teams to move fast, deploy software efficiently, and operate at an unprecedented scale. Red Hat provides the leading enterprise container platform to implement fully orchestrated multi-container applications. Through streamlined workflows and validated integrations, Red Hat OpenShift enables efficient application development and deployment.

This workshop is intended to give you a hands-on introduction to OpenShift from the perspective of a developer. It will guide you through the process of building and deploying an application with a data backend and a web frontend. Being designed for beginners, this workshop requires no prior container or OpenShift experience and does not involve any programming.


  • Using the OpenShift command line client and web console
  • Deploying an application using a pre-existing container image
  • Working with application labels to identify component parts
  • Scaling up your application in order to handle web traffic
  • Exposing your application to users outside of the cluster
  • Viewing and working with logs generated by your application
  • Accessing your application container and interacting with it
  • Giving access to other users to collaborate on your application
  • Deploying an application from source code in a Git repository
  • Deploying a database from the OpenShift developer catalog
  • Configuring an application so it can access a database
  • Setting up webhooks to enable automated application builds

Additional topics may also be covered relevant to the specific programming language used by the applications being deployed 

There are 4 programming language variants that can be selected during the workshop:

  • Java
  • Node.js
  • Python
