The Egeria Dojo

The Egeria Dojo is an intensive course to help you learn about Egeria. It is designed as a 3 day effort, although, since it is self-study you can dip in and out of it as time permits.

The objectives of the three day are as follows:

  • Day 1: Learning about setting up and running Egeria on you own machine.
  • Day 2: Learning how to make a contribution to Egeria
  • Day 3: Learning how to become either an advocate or a maintainer

The sessions are color-coded like ski runs.

Green - Beginner sessions

Blue - Intermediate sessions

Red - Advanced sessions

Black - Expert sessions

As you progress through the dojo, the colors of the sessions show how advanced your knowledge is becoming.

The schedule also includes estimated times needed to complete each session as well as breaks to give your mind a rest from time to time.

Also within the sessions are links to videos of the live sessions run in May 2020. These videos are consolidated into single playlist on YouTube here:

Day 1

After completing day 1 of the Egeria dojo you should feel comfortable with setting up and running the Egeria technology. It includes sessions on the prerequisite technology that Egeria uses, how to configure Egeria, how to start and stop various capabilities and well as diagnosing any problems you may come across.
