if all days are ok for all in the team, I want to suggest this Wednesday, 28th July 2021, at 18:00 (German time)/ 9:00 (Pacific time)/ 17:00 (Nigeria) / 13:00 (Brazil). I hope that it is working for all on this mailing list. :)
We will meet us on our openSUSE Jitsy: https://meet.opensuse.org/s390x
Topics for the first session: 1) Introduction to Mainframes and the LinuxONE Community Cloud 2) How to upgrade in install the required environment 3) Dockerfiles and their structure 4) How to test container images on the Mainframe (and other systems) 5) Plans: Which applications are required as container images? (Discussion with suggestions for all)
I expect, that we will need 1.5 hours. I am looking forward to see you all (especially our new Team Members). :-)
Best regards, Sarah

I am happy to announce, that Accenture wants to support us with a project based working time sponsoring. We are allowed to enable Kubernetes platforms for s390x with the creation of container images. Michael, Holger, Siarhei, Francesco, Pedro and Roberto are joining our team now. Accenture is providing the possibility to use until 8 hours/week for open-source projects, NGO contributions, conferences and other stuff. We (of this Circle group) want to use this time for openSUSE. :-)
Our team is growing and we have got many new team members with different background. Some are really good in DevOps/containers and others in mainframe stuff. I thought about bi-weekly training sessions for knowledge sharing, that all can contribute everywhere and can understand the background of our team and openSUSE contributions.
The best matching time for German/Nigerian volunteers is in the evening (USA in the morning). Is there any special day or time for you all, which is not matching with your family or any hobby? Then answer here, that we can find the best time for all! Then we can start next week with the first introduction how to create container images on the mainframe.
Best regards, Sarah
