## AGHI2 GitLab and GitLab.com

During this gentle, hands-on introduction to GitLab
We'll create pretend products (probably cheese sandwiches or pies).
We'll create product teams.
We'll iterate on our pretend products so quickly that our BitBucket/GitHub using competition will be driven into financial distress and then we will poach their developers. Muhhahah!
And a whole lot more....

In process of partnering with GitLab to host/sponsor this event! Stay tuned for the details.

Saturday, May 4th

## Intro to DevOps with Silvia, Kim, Anthony, and Aaron

2nd run! We'll use Linux, Bash, Git, Gitlab, Docker, and AWS to create minimum viable DevOps continuous integration pipelines on our laptops. This class is based on content created by Aaron Brown, systems engineer and VP of DevOps at Flowhub.com. Aaron will be on-hand for questions and discussion.

## SFS Method

If you've worked in tech for any length of time, you probably notice you have to keep constantly learning new things. One of those things should be how to teach the things
you know. This makes you a more effective communicator which is crucial to career development. Not to mention teaching is a great way to reinforce your own learning.

Wednesday, May 29th
6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
at The Comfy Room (SFS HQ)
or in Zoom

$32 or PWYC

## Events In-planning

You can't RSVP to these yet.

* Ansible by Alex Wise! TBD
* Some kind of Red Hat day? This came up recently and I like the idea. If interested in this, let us know at captains at sofree.us

If you don't see what you want, make a wish! The captains at sofree.us love requests!

## Reminders

* We are lifelong learners. Please share learning opportunities, even if they're not produced by SFS.
* We are friends. You can post just about anything, but if it doesn't have to do with learning free-libre software, stick an "OT:" in front of it.
* We are professionals (when we must be). Please post your help wanted and job wanted here.
* Come hang out with us in [Mattermost](https://mm.sofree.us/sfs-team/channels/town-square)!
