Understanding that Jacobs teams are "delivering for tomorrow," we'll be taking a look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 which has key features—from container tools to GPU support—to deploy tomorrow's technology, today. This workshop will cover the features, specifications, and improvements that comprise the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 8 (RHEL 8).
The RHEL 8 workshop is meant for anyone who has any exposure to Linux, whether you have used this distribution, or not. The event will begin with a short overview and then will move on to the lab. Hopefully, you have your laptop with you. If not, please find a shoulder-surfing buddy. See? Not only can we dig into RHEL, but you can make a new friend!
