We'll use Linux, Bash, Git, Gitlab, Docker, and AWS to create minimum viable DevOps continuous integration pipelines on our laptops. This class is based on content created by Aaron Brown, systems engineer and VP of DevOps at Flowhub.com. Aaron will be on-hand for questions and discussion.
Also some talk about learning through community, collaboration, and the concept of teaching others as learning/career development.
Linux/Bash basics - the tildae, paths, tab completion, command history, variables, command substitution
Git and Gitlab - ssh keys / authentication, GitLab API, local git directory, git commands, git clone, working with repos, continuous integration features
Docker - terms, test, Dockerfile, Docker build, Docker run, make webserver w/ Docker
AWS cloud infrastructure on free tier - authentication, Elastic IP, Cloud Formation, EC2

Q: Who is this class for?
A: LEARNERS who are one or more of the following (no particular order):
- MID-CAREER IT PROS - update skill set, fill gaps, continuous learning
- TEACHERS OF IT OR ASPIRING - regardless of IT skill level, your interest is in the idea of teaching as a way of learning, networking with the like-minded
- DEVELOPERS - want or need to understand the IT infrastructure part of the equation better for career development
- CURIOUS - would like a gentle hands-on intro to determine if this is a good career path... don't want to rely solely on google or other online tutorials to figure that out
- TEAM MANAGERS - take or send someone to the class - even if not on the keyboard as much, this will be beneficial
[NOTES]: a little experience with linux basics prior to class helps but is not necessary
employers will often pay for this kind of learning if asked
