During the week of July 20, Mesosphere will participate in a few exciting events coinciding with O'Reilly Media's, Open Source Conference (OSCON).


On Monday, July 20, Mesosphere offered its first SOLD OUT Kubernetes Bootcamp training. This course was a collaboration between Mesosphere, Google and O'Reilly Media. It was also a pilot course that launched Mesosphere's training program, which will roll out in earnest in Q4. Below are some course highlights:


  • Container basics (cgroups, namespaces, Docker basics)
  • Using Docker (find, launch and build Docker images, inspection, logging, etc.)
  • Kubernetes (orchestration basics, Kubernetes components and infrastructure, managing nodes, pods, and services)
  • Building and deploying and end-to-end example application (from architecture to Docker images to Kubernetes deployment)


On Tuesday, July 21, Google's Kubernetes 1.0 will launch and look into the future of container orchestration. Mesosphere is sponsoring the Kubernetes 1.0 Launch and has been invited to participate in many ways:


  • Partner showcase keynote
  • Mesosphere's Datacenter Operating System (DCOS) on a cool appliance rack (courtesy of Intel, Quanta, and Redapt) Partner showcase networking booth
  • A Mesosphere surprise at the Kubernetes After Party


Kubernetes is not the only topic of conversation this week; don't miss some of Mesosphere's best engineers speak at OSCON.
