CatN has a history of working closely with the CentOS community

The CentOS Linux community is heading 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 that is at the core of the cloud hosting products they develop.

CatN Operations Director, Paul Maunders, said: “The CentOS Linux distribution is at the core of almost all of our operations at CatN. 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.”

CatN has a history of working closely with the CentOS community. Mark Sutton, CTO of CatN, was inspired to give something back to the CentOS project after attending a previous CentOS Dojo event in Antwerp.

He said: “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.

“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. “

The CentOS event is not for profit and all proceeds go back to the project to support the development of CentOS.

Karanbir Singh, CentOS project leader said: “The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios.”

Several presenters are lined up, covering everything from custom LiveCD creation, OpenStack, Infiniband, and the Xen hypervisor.
