In this workshop, participants will deploy a sample application that helps find Beach Clean Up Days in a given area. They will learn how to deploy the app to a secure DigitalOcean Droplet and learn core principles of Developer Operations (DevOps) such as Security, High Availability, and Monitoring to streamline production applications.
Powered by DigitalOcean
We've partnered with DigitalOcean to bring you this workshop. DigitalOcean is a developer-friendly cloud provider. You can build really powerful applications quickly using DigitalOcean.
Flexible Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use for your development projects, web hosting, and more.
Load Balancers and Monitoring
Ensure that your web application is always available with a fully-managed, highly available load balancing service from DigitalOcean. Load Balancers distribute traffic to groups of Droplets, which decouples the overall health of a backend service from the health of a single server to ensure that your services stay online. Gathers metrics about resource utilization of your Droplet with DigitalOcean’s monitoring features to help track the operational health of your infrastructure.
Requirements / Prerequisites
Participants should have administrative access to their local machines and be able to SSH into servers using their system Terminal/iTerm, PuTTy, or similar. System Requirements: MacOS or Windows 8 or higher.
