In the first week, participants will learn cloud-native technologies from Sujee Maniyam, a Big Data expert and technical instructor at Elephant Scale. Examples of topics to be covered include multi-cloud deployment using Terraform, container orchestration in the cloud using Kubernetes, and utilizing serverless computing for account monitoring.

In the second week, participants will put what they learn to the test by working together in small groups on a proposed project relevant to the challenges the research IT community faces. For example, a project can focus on how administrators configure the network for multi-cloud workloads and cloud bursting. The goal of these projects is to build reproducible and scalable solutions that the cohort will share openly on Github and collate into an open-source playbook that will be made widely available to the R&E community. 

More information including how and why to reserve your space today is available on the CLASS Advanced website. For further questions, send us an email: class@internet2.edu. We look forward to seeing you in CLASS!
