Devops BootCamp Fall Kickoff

November 4th, 2017
Kelley Engineering Center

The OSL is once again kicking off DevOps BootCamp with the annual fall kickoff! DevOps BootCamp Fall Kickoff (formerly DevOps DayCamp) is a single-day event designed to teach participants DevOps, a program development process that includes building, testing, and releasing software. Participants learn the basics of DevOps practices as an introduction to our more comprehensive course, DevOps Bootcamp.

OSU Open Source Lab

The Oregon State Open Source Lab (OSUOSL) is a nonprofit organization advancing open source technologies. The lab hosts more than 160 projects, including global technology leaders like the Apache Software Foundation, the Linux Foundation and Drupal. Together, the OSL’s hosted sites deliver nearly 430 terabytes of information worldwide every month. The most active organization of its kind, the OSL offers world-class hosting services, professional software development and on-the-ground training for promising students interested in open source management and programming.

The Open Source Lab is part of an experiential learning organization at Oregon State called the Center for Applied Systems and Software (CASS). CASS involves student employees in testing, software development, networking, DevOps, and hosting for national and international partners.

Topics covered

We are still working out specific topics for this year's fall kickoff however we are planning on discussing at least the following:

Introductory Workshop and Navigating Linux

  • Review what DevOps and DevOps Bootcamp are.
  • Cover what DevOps BootCamp will teach you throughout the year.
  • Get you started with your own Linux server that that you can use for hands on demos.
  • Get started using that Remote Linux Virtual Machine (VM)!

All you need to do is have a laptop and web browser.

Operating Systems, Users, and Files

  • What an operating system is.
  • Who (and what) a Linux User can be.
  • What a file is in Linux and how to learn about them.

Software, Documentation, and Getting on IRC & Slack

  • What software is.
  • How to install software in Linux.
  • How to find documentation for a project.
  • How you communicate with open source projects.

And finally we will get you on Internet Relay Chat (IRC) and Slack so you can communicate with DevOps Bootcamp teachers and students throughout the year.

Industry Panel

Network with OSL and CASS professionals and alumni currently working in the tech industry. This free-from discussion can answer any questions you have about doing DevOps as a career. In the past, we have had professionals from Mozilla, Linux Foundation, and Apache Software Foundation. This year's panel will be announced in the weeks leading up to the event.
