These free and interactive online events have something for everyone. Linux Foundation webinars offer an overview or a deep dive into particular technologies, or a broader look at business topics relevant to open source strategy.

Introduction to Linux Kernel Modules

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time

Many people find the Linux kernel an overwhelming place, and don’t know where to start. This seminar will introduce Linux kernel modules and the kernel Kbuild system. The Linux Kernel Kbuild system allow you to build both the Linux kernel and out-of-tree modules. It has also been copied into most other major Embedded projects in order to handle the configuration of features in their own code.


Creating a 100% Encrypted Web: Let’s Encrypt

Wednesday, August 22, 2018 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated and open Certificate Authority issuing digital certificates for website encryption globally. Let’s Encrypt is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG), a public benefit organization with a mission to reduce financial, technological, and education barriers to secure communication over the Internet. Since its launch in December, 2015, Let’s Encrypt has issued over 200 million certificates for more than 65 million websites. For more information or to offer your support, visit www.letsencrypt.org.

You’ll learn:

  • Why you should switch to HTTPS now
  • How Let’s Encrypt works
  • Why Let’s Encrypt is different

Building sustainable, open communities at The Linux Foundation

Thursday, September 6, 2018 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time

Learn about how The Linux Foundation focuses on building sustainable, open collaboration communities designed for longevity. While open source communities can start and grow with very distinct identities, there are certain governance and design principles that will setup a community for long term success.

During this webinar you will learn about:

  • Open governance
  • Building ecosystems
  • Community lifecycles and scaling
  • Sustainability
  • How foundations like The Linux Foundation can add value to your community

A hitchhiker’s guide to deploying Hyperledger Fabric on Kubernetes

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time

Deploying a multi-component system like Hyperledger Fabric to production is challenging. In this webinar we lower the threshold by showing how to deploy Hyperledger Fabric onto Kubernetes through the usage of Helm Charts. Rather than using a monolithic Helm Chart for the whole deployment, we provide separate charts for each Hyperledger Fabric component, namely the Certificate Authority, Peer, CouchDB and Orderer. We demonstrate how to enable these charts to work together to provide a working blockchain system.
