Workshop Virtual Machines
Please note that the training requires you to bring a laptop. You will need to have either an RDP client (for Windows) or SSH client (for Linux), plus root access to modify your etc/host files, depending on your choice of operating system for this class.
The training makes use of Virtual Machines (VMs), in this case derived from Amazon Marketplace Images (AMI) loaded on Amazon Web Services. The training team will provide access instructions when you arrive for the first day of the training. You will have the choice of running the VM in your own AWS instance, or having Internet2 and InCommon host the VM on your behalf.
Please review the preparation instructions for your environment
OBTAIN YOUR NAME BADGE and other important meeting materials outside the training room, which opens at 8:00 a.m. We suggest you arrive by 8:30, to allow enough time to check in, browse the beverages, and get your laptop up and running.
CASUAL ATTIRE is suggested. All software used is thread-safe, so steel-toed boots, hard hats, and leather gloves are strictly optional.
BEVERAGES AND LUNCH: We do *not* provide breakfast in the morning, although we do endorse the concept that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That said, coffee, tea, soft drinks and water will be available and there will be a mid-morning snack. Lunch *is* provided as part of your registration and there will be an afternoon snack break, as well.
TUESDAY HAPPY HOUR - Unicon will host a happy hour immediately following the first day of training on Tuesday, so please allow for this when making dinner plans.
If you have any questions about the workshop or its technical content, please send a note to .
