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. 

The content will be delivered by Rancher's technical experts and aim to educate anyone interested in learning how to use containers or Kubernetes.

During these virtual hands-on workshops, our technical experts will provide an introduction to Rancher, Docker, and Kubernetes and then walk through the steps for deploying a Kubernetes cluster.
