Rackspace Training For OpenStack Continues University Tour In 2014

The Rackspace Training for OpenStack team had so much fun visiting major colleges and universities last year and giving students hands-on experience with OpenStack, that we’re back at it again in 2014.

This year, we’ve already visited some big names, most recently Stanford. And we’re on track for a few more before February comes to a close.

This week we’re hitting Berkeley (from Monday, February 10 through Thursday, February 13) and after that we’re heading to the University of Portland (from Monday, February 24 through Thursday, February 27). The courses, which run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. local time each night, will teach students how to design, deploy and operate a cloud at scale using OpenStack, the open source cloud software that we founded.

Our goal during these four-night training sessions is to fully immerse students in an OpenStack environment so they can evaluate it, use it and sharpen their OpenStack skills. Through the course, students will have hands on access to OpenStack. Once the course is completed, students will have the experience and knowledge to install, run and operate OpenStack-powered clouds.

This month’s visits are just the beginning. We’re excited to head to more colleges and universities throughout 2014 and spread the OpenStack love.

If your college, university or research organization is interested in learning the ins and outs of OpenStack, please get in touch with training@rackspace.com. We plan to add more seminars in coming months.
