Cloud Foundry Workshops

Kickstart your team's experience in Cloud Foundry.

Cloud Foundry is the only enterprise-grade 12-Factor application platform. It can unlock your development team, enabling true DevOps workflows, and acts as the substrate for microservice architectures. A massive Cloud Foundry installation can easily be run by a single pair of well-trained and experienced operators. But with BOSH, CredHub, Concourse, and the new Kubernetes orchestration tools, finding experienced operators is increasingly difficult. That’s where our training comes in.

Turn your team into Cloud Foundry experts.






Crafted for either the Operator or Developer

SuperOrbital offers two complementary workshops. The first, aimed at your operations team, helps them understand how all of the internal Cloud Foundry pieces work together, how to deploy and manage them effectively at scale, and how to debug the internals when things go wrong.

The second focuses on your application development team, showing them all of the power Cloud Foundry unlocks, and how to architect their applications using microservice best practices to make full use of the platform.

We can tailor our training to focus on the open source Cloud Foundry platform, or the supported Pivotal CF product.

If in-person training isn't what you’re looking for, check out our Safari LiveLesson on using BOSH.

This five hour hands-on tutorial will teach you how to harness its power to build resilient and reliable cloud native deployments. Start by deploying a fresh BOSH director using the latest tooling on GCP, and finish by authoring your own BOSH release to manage your own software reliably in the cloud.

"Absolutely great course! Learnt so much about BOSH releases. Great work!"

"The BOSH training videos from SuperOrbital have been ace for bootstrapping our new starters with BOSH knowledge, fast."

Topics covered are entirely up to you and your needs.

Common examples include:

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this subject, students should come prepared with an understanding of:

  • Linux and Unix processes, users, and permissions
  • The fundamentals of virtualization and containerization
  • The Bash shell and rudimentary scripting

Intended audiences

We can tailor this subject to focus on the needs of:

  • Application developers deploying 12 factor applications.
  • Operations people who are looking to master BOSH

SuperOrbital also offers training in Kubernetes, Microservices, Agile Engineering, and the Hashicorp tools.

Kind words from some of our students


"AWESOME! THANK YOU!"

"Would be their student again, 10/10!"

"I liked the way the instructor forced me to think and apply what we're learning."

"Seriously the best course I've taken all year."

"The ability to let the students work through the lab before showing the solution helps with allowing for a deeper understanding of the content instead of spoon feeding the solution."

The SuperOrbital Difference

We're dedicated to delivering direct value and to ensuring customer success. Here’s how that makes us different:


Bespoke

We tailor each course to your needs.

Most training companies reuse publicly available stock training content, no matter your team's background, skill level, or immediate needs. We’re different. We work with you beforehand to produce a tailored workshop. Each one is densely packed with content that's directly useful to you.

Here for you

We help after the training is through.

Unlike other companies, we do more than training. In order to keep our skills sharp we have a deep engineering practice as well. This gives us and you an advantage - we’re able to help with architectural guidance and engineering after the workshop is done. We can help you apply the knowledge you've gained through the bedrock of practice.

Hands-on

We don’t believe in static, podium-based training.

Instead, SuperOrbital courses immerse your team in an active learning environment where they internalize the lessons through collaboration and hands-on workshops. The end result is knowledge that sticks, and a foundation for true expertise.

Unbiased

We give the best advice for your situation.

We believe in cloud native solutions, but we aren't beholden to any vendor. Every situation is unique, and every tool has flaws. We help you understand how the available solutions work together to solve your problems. We guide you away from the tools that are hype, and toward those that are battle tested.
