Who Should Attend
This is a free event, open to anyone who wants to learn about Rancher and is interested in finding out how to deploy and manage Kubernetes in production. If you’re in IT Operations, DevOps, Enterprise Architecture, Application Architecture, or InfoSec and want to learn how to use containers or Kubernetes, sign up for a Rancher Rodeo near you.
To get the most out of the Rodeo experience, attendees should have a basic working knowledge of Docker, and come prepared with a laptop computer and a place to deploy machines. Ahead of the event, attendees can install Vagrant to run machines locally if the host laptop has at least 6G of free RAM. As an alternative, attendees can launch instances in the cloud provider of their choice, as long as they have the access credentials to do so.
The Rodeos are designed to be an interactive, hands-on experience so we encourage attendees to actively participate and engage with our speakers.
