Welcome! We do actually have multiple SRE training efforts underway for
Operate First at the moment, so we should try to coordinate this better as
a first step. Sarah Coghlan has been coordinating training for new SREs
from the student community. There have also been some Operate First
workshops, although those are not exactly training.
I am not sure that we have critical mass to form a separate training SIG
yet, so I think discussing it in SIG-Community makes sense, at least to
start. Both efforts have the objective of bringing more people to Operate
First and making it easier for them to contribute.

My team is currently focused on creating self-paced training content aimed
at enabling current and prospective SREs for their job roles. Most of our
content is going to internal Red Hat associates first (it's the group we
serve). But we have a goal to work with other Red Hatters committed to
pushing that content out into the community space. We also have two
training modules (units of training) currently in development that are
going directly into the community space: "The Operate First Mindset" and
"Getting Involved with Open Source."
To make this possible, I've worked on setting up our Operate First
"training" repo <https://github.com/stefwrite/training>
 with a
README.md, directory structure, and the placeholders for the Operate First
and Open Source courses in Jupyter Book form. Our current plan is to
develop each training module as a Jupyter Book within that directory
We're now at the stage of needing help from the rest of the community to:
- Get feedback/suggestions about our plan to use Jupyter Book in this
- Engage someone who can create some PR-triggered automation that will
build the books and publish them to a training space at
- Take any suggestions on how we could organize the content in the
repo better to facilitate that automation
I am working off building Jupyter Books into HTML, then publishing the
HTML. But perhaps there's an alternative I haven't considered. I'm welcome
to anything that will make the process easier for contributors and
Once we can establish a flow of create+publish+maintain, we can all start
to build out that content.
What should my next step be?
Also, Is this within the realm of the community SIG? Or should we form a
"training SIG" for this? Or maybe a general "knowledge SIG"
on both docs and training?
