Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All trainings cost $475 per person and you must select the training course of your choice, while registering for the full conference.

The Workshop Have you ever wondered how to deploy and operate a platform that’s designed to deploy and operate applications? Join us and find out how with a hands-on training workshop. We’ll teach you how to deploy and manage the Cloud Foundry platform as well as the stateful data services that power cloud-native applications. We’ll provide an operational overview of Cloud Foundry and data services, and how these can be deployed with the cluster orchestration tool, “BOSH”.
This training is targeted at people with little to no Cloud Foundry BOSH experience but who have some experience managing Linux-based systems. If you’re curious to learn how BOSH can help you deploy and manage Cloud Foundry and other complex systems.
