CentOS Dojo Santa Clara, CA, USA 31 March 2014 @ Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo

The CentOS Project will be holding a Dojo the day before the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo, at the The Santa Clara Convention Center.

A one day sysadmin-centric learning and sharing experience

CentOS Dojos are one day events, 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.
