We are bringing OpenStack to the classroom and as part of our effort we will teach, mentor and assist a group of 15 students for a period of 10 weeks, covering the following topics:




Introduction to Python programming.
Unit Testing in Python.


Microsoft virtualization using Windows Hyper-V


Introduction to OpenStack.

Hi, this is a free workshop for students in the Timisoara IT universities. We’re planning to expand it to other locations as well, but only in Romania for now.
