Dear CI professionals:
If you are interested in leveraging the cloud for your researchers and on your campus, there are two amazing (and fun!) upcoming learning opportunities from Internet2:
1. CLASS Advanced - Online | April 3-14, 2023 (Early bird discount till March 17: $2250, $2500 thereafter)
CLASS Advanced is one of the only learning programs existing that offers a well-rounded overview of tools and services from three public cloud-providers: AWS, GCP, and Azure. The program is developed by research professionals for the research community. Through a two-week immersive learning experience, participants will be empowered to leverage all three clouds for research workflows and utilize a project-based, cohort model for solving real-world challenges unique to the Research IT community.
The instructor is Sujee Maniyam, a Big Data expert and technical instructor at Elephant Scale/
Week 1 (April 3-7): Participants will learn cloud-native technologies and tools, including multi-cloud/hybrid deployment using Terraform, container orchestration in the cloud using Kubernetes, utilizing serverless computing for account monitoring, and build cloud-native AI/ML pipelines.
- Week 2 (April 10-14): Participants will test their knowledge by working with groups on a project relevant to the challenges the research IT community faces. The goal is to build solutions that the cohort will share openly on Github and collate into an open-source playbook that will be made available to the R&E community.
Seating is limited. Apply today!
2. CLASS Essentials - Online | March 14, 15, 16 ($100 Internet2 Members, $150 non-members)
