Egeria Dojo Days

By January 12, 2022No Comments

Guest Author: David Radley

Egeria Dojos are online tutorials, which guide a user through hands-on activities showcasing the value and capability of using Egeria.  There is an introduction Dojo that leads you through how to setup Egeria and how to use some basic capabilities. There are then other Dojos that are targeted at audiences for example Egeria contributors. On day 5, the Dojo covers real life considerations of running Egeria in production. 

The Egeria Dojos have been brought up to date and extended to showcase new Egeria capabilities. Members of the Egeria Community will lead education sessions on each of these new Dojos; which are being run monthly at the start of 2022. The Dojo educational content will remain available after the live education sessions.

There will be at least 5 Dojo days, which will be presented monthly. Any changes and/or additions can be found in this working document on the wiki:

The Dojos will be streaming on Zoom Conference .  

More details of the currently planned 5 days of the Dojo:
