Cloud/Container Apprentice Linux Engineer (C-ALE)

Are you new to Linux servers and all the various technologies that come along with modern server infrastructure? Virtual Machines, containers, docker, cloud, SDN and all the *aaS possibilities! Come learn all the basics with C-ALE (currently at the Open Source Summit North America)

There are so many cloud technologies to choose from and learn!

What should I bring to the seminar?

Attendees must bring their own laptop with the following requirements:

  • A minimum of a recent i5 processor
  • 8-16GB of RAM
  • Your plugin power supply (we will be compiling a lot)
  • At least 100GB of free disk space
  • A Virtual Machine Hypervisor or AWS account

What is the License of this material?

All our slides are licensed under CC BY-SA, and the code under GPL/MIT. Feel free to share or use this material however you see fit. The idea is to share all speaker slides and code on github.

Are there Recordings?

Recordings depend on the conference, but we’re trying to have all the seminars recorded and published to YouTube.

Who are the Instructors?

All of our E-ALE instructors are all either professional Instructors, or domain experts in the topics they’re sharing.

Come learn from our domain experts and professional Trainers today!

Is C-ALE a company?

We are an open source project made up largely of community members and companies who want to help people get into Embedded Linux programming.

All the materials and instructor time is donated, and all the HW kits are priced as low as we can to cover costs.

Who started C-ALE?

A number of long-time Linux Engineers were standing around an established Conference talking about how they had been hearing from attendees new to Linux that the existing talks were too advanced for people transitioning to Linux. And this crazy idea to provide low cost Linux training at existing conferences was born.

Surely C-ALE is selling something?

C-ALE operates as a non-profit. We only try to cover costs. The time and written materials used in C-ALE are all donated.

Certainly, all of our C-ALE instructors are a consultants or work for the projects they’re teaching in their seminars. Each of them would be happy to talk to you further about more paid training or possible contract work. However, that is up to you to ask them about it.

We’ll be posting videos of the talks when they’re available!
