About the Workshop

Rancher Virtual Rodeos are free, in-depth online workshops designed to give DevOps and IT teams the hands-on skills they need to deploy and manage Kubernetes everywhere.

This newly launched Developer Edition is aimed at developers coding applications that need to run in containers. The virtual workshop is open to anyone who wants to find out how to containerize applications and deploy them to Rancher infrastructure.

The key topics that will be covered at the Rancher Rodeos include:

  • Docker and Kubernetes concepts and architecture
  • Building containers and some best practices
  • Installation and configuration of Rancher server
  • Helm chart creation
  • Rancher catalog creation and maintenance


Attendees should have a basic working knowledge of Docker. Training sessions are taught using an interactive, web-based tool called HobbyFarm. This tool lets you access compute resources through an in-browser terminal while following along with prepared learning scenarios. Attendees should also have GitHub and Dockerhub accounts.
