Building on the success of the last Day Zero Hackathon and the growth of The ITEM Academy, we have decided to do it again BIGGER and BETTER!

We will still be focused on developing skills that infrastructure professionals (DevOps engineers, solution architects, and sysadmins) use in their daily working lives. Our projects will focus on Linux, Cloud Computing and DevOps ("LCD").
