self host DO180 lab environment

Hello,

Recently completed the DO180 course. The lab hours are finished, so I was wondering if there any guided steps to self-host the lab so I can study/practice on my own computer.

Thanks,

Re: self host DO180 lab environment

Installing OpenShift is not a simple endeavour, there is a course dedicated to this subject (DO322) and that has the administrator course (DO280) as a pre-requisite. Not to mention that you require quite powerfull hardware to do so.

Fortunately Red Hat provides a couple easy ways to play with OpenShift without having to install a full cluster by yourself:

  • The OpenShift Developer Sandbox is a short-lived cluster in the cloud. You request one for you and it will be deleted after a few days. You can request a new one as many times as you wish, you just won't be able to keep apps and data long-term and you won't have full administrator privileges.
    https://developers.redhat.com/developer-sandbox
  • Code Ready Container is a trimmed down OpenShift cluster that runs as a single VM. You can install it in Mac, Windows, or Linux and it requires a 16GB computer at least but gives have full administrator privileges.
    https://developers.redhat.com/products/codeready-containers/overview

Both of them would be sufficient for you to practice DO180-level skills.

Re: self host DO180 lab environment

I just registered for the DO180 course.  I am on chapter 1 session 7.  I cant even find the Lab Environment tab that is being talked about. 

How do I navigate there?

Thanks

Re: self host DO180 lab environment

Hi,

It should be in the same page you read the online book:

Click the tab and you 'll see the button to create your classroom:

If you don't... check your web browser version, try cleaning its cache and using a private windows. If nothing else works, open a customer support ticket.

The next time you could start with the customer support ticket because they would probably answer you faster than the learning community. They are there to help self-paced customers access and use the course environment.

Re: self host DO180 lab environment

Thanks - I was watching the videos (watch).  The labs were on the read tab (not that obvious).

 

Thanks
