The CentOS Linux community are headed to CatN’s headquarters for the first UK Dojo event on the 12th July 2013.

CentOS Dojos are relaxed one day events for speakers in the Linux community to talk about advances in the operating system, system administration best practices, and their experiences using CentOS.

CatN are sponsoring the event on the 12th July and providing a venue to support the open source project which is at the core of the cloud hosting products they develop.

CatN Operations Director, Paul Maunders said:

Our vCluster product is built on CentOS, most of our client work involves CentOS as the base OS, and we have 4 Red Hat Certified Engineers on staff, so you can see that we are big fans of the distro.
