CentOS Dojo Denver, Co, USA, 10th April 2014, @ ApacheCon Conference

A one day sysadmin centric learning and sharing experience

The CentOS Dojo's are a one day event, organised 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.

The Denver Dojo is colocated with the CloudStack Collaboration Conference at ApacheCon 2014 and is located in the Westin Denver Downtown facility.

Johnny Hughes

Growing CentOS as a Platform for Infrastructure Development: The data center is changing, and the role of server operating systems is evolving along with it. CentOS is taking on the challenge of becoming a platform for innovation that enables next-generation services to meet the needs of the data center today and tomorrow. We'll look at how CentOS is embracing special interest groups (SIGs) and variants, in addition to its standard offerings, to meet those needs. We'll also take time for Q&A and let the audience introduce themselves so that attendees can make the most of the "hallway" track. Growing_CentOS_Platform.pdf
