A One Day Learning and Sharing Experience

The CentOS Dojo's are a one day event, organized around the world, that bring together people from the CentOS Communities to talk about systems administration, best practices in Linux centric activities and emerging technologies of note. The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios.


We suggest you to pick up a hotel close to the railway station in Geneva, which is also close to the tram line number 18 ( Direct to CERN, ).

Hotels close to the railway station can be found here.

      Supporting the deployment of CentOS in Amazon EC2, David Duncan

      Cloud Images of CentOS are available for use on Amazon EC2 in hybrid architecture. This is a review of techniques and requirements for the integration of on-premises resources with cloud resources. David will start with core concepts in networking, Amazon EC2 compute concepts, and core service options for compute, storage, and databases. Learn to use the breadth of services and partners in the AWS ecosystem to enhance your workloads. Explores what you need to run your existing enterprise applications on AWS with support and high performance.

      System containers on CentOS - Giuseppe Scrivano

      System containers is the suggested solution for running system services in a container on Atomic Host, they also work on systems not managed by OSTree. System containers use systemd to manage the lifecyle of a service and runC, the same container runtime used by Docker, to spawn the container.

      This talk addresses users and developers that are interested in running system services in containers.

      CentOS and 3rd part repositories, Nicolas Chauvet

      Well known repositories provide additional content for CentOS related to several components: CUDA, Out of tree Kernel modules, Multimedia, AltArch, etc. This talk is about one of them and will attempt to describe the resources and plan of the project. It will ask where to draw the line between CentOS and 3rd party area. And try to extend features with community contributions; if ever this cannot be addressed by CentOS SIG for various reasons.

    • Thank you party. Drinks and food.
