KubeWeekly #226: July 24, 2020

The Headlines

Editor’s pick of the highlights from the past week. 

Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp makes it simple for IT pros to learn cloud
CNCF staff

Following the successful launch of the Cloud Engineer Bootcamp last month, The Linux Foundation and CNCF heard from many sysadmins, developers, engineers, and others who wanted a similarly structured program to help them learn the skills necessary to move into cloud engineering but with more advanced training. These individuals did not need the beginner training courses included Cloud Engineer Bootcamp.

That led us to launch a new Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp. The program includes six training courses and registration for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam, along with dedicated online support forums and weekday live video chat with instructors. Designed for working professionals, the program can be completed in as little as six months with around 10 hours per week of study time.

Learn more about the program and sign up today!

Tutorial: KubeEdge Hands on Workshop — Build Your Edge AI App on Real Edge Devices 
Presented by: Zefeng Wang, Huawei & Zhang Jie, China Unicom

This workshop is intended to invite participants to get hands on experience building a real edge computing solution with KubeEdge, end-to-end.

Starting from deploying and provisioning an edge node(e.g. Raspberry Pi), followed with device modeling and connectivity setup, then building a video stream machine learning based solution.

Through this exercise, participants will get first hand experience to understand the orchestration engine build on top of Kubernetes, understand the edge computing node setup mechanism, learn the device modeling concept for IoT Edge scenarios. And develop a state-of-art AI based video stream processing flow, all in a 30 minutes session.
