CentOS Dojo – videos of the talks

The CentOS Dojo held earlier this month at CatN HQ was a great success. The day was full of fascinating presentations and delicious food.

The CatN team were working hard on the day to provide a live stream of the event and to record all the talks to share with the community. Our design team have been busy behind the scenes and the videos are now available on the CentOS YouTube account. You can also check them out in the special CentOS Dojo playlist on the CatN YouTube stream.

CatN to host UK CentOS Dojo in July

centos-dojo-catWe are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a UK Centos Dojo meet up at our offices in Aldershot on Friday 12th July 2013.

The CentOS Linux distribution is at the core of almost all of our operations at CatN. This website is hosted on our vCluster stack which is built on CentOS, most of our client work involves CentOS as the base OS, and we have 4 Red Hat Certified Engineers on site at Aldershot, so you can see that we are big fans of the distro.

Our CTO Mark attended the last European CentOS Dojo in Antwerp and loved it, so we thought it would be great to host one closer to home. This would also allow us to give something back to the project, on which a lot of our business depends.

CatN goes to CentOS Dojo Antwerp

It’s no secret that we use a lot of CentOS at CatN, in fact we have deployed thousands of instances over time on both physical and virtual machines, and we have 4 Red Hat Certified Engineers (soon to be 6) on staff.

As a company with deep expertise and experience with CentOS it makes complete sense that we understand where our software comes from. You only have to look at the state of our food chain to see that interest in your upstream makes a lot of sense. At the end of the day we have to trust the food [software] that we eat [install]!

Getting to events like this is a great way to get a feel for a community, meet people and potentially find a way to contribute back into the ecosystem as well. What’s not to like about that?
