Women Who Code: Intro to Backend with CoreOS and DigitalOcean

Furlow consulting


Learn what the back-end of dev is all about!

This workshop is a collaboration between CoreOS and Digital Ocean. In it, we create a server on DigitalOcean, and walk through the practical setup of stuff like SSH, the init system, and more. We also explore Container technology (like Docker), and compare and contrast it with the classic style of development.

By the end of this workshop, you should have a DigitalOcean server running a basic website. Our goal is also to provide a basic introduction to back-end philosophies and concepts, empowering you to continue to explore the space on your own.

This workshop requires a Mac or Linux based laptop, and very basic experience on the command line.

Have a Windows computer?
Install WSL (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/commandline/wsl/install_guide) OR an Ubuntu (or similar) virtual machine. The main tool you’ll need is an ssh client.
