Competency Technical Working Group Meeting – CASS Install Jam

August 9, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Venue: Online

This Competency Technical Working Group Meeting is focused on installing the Competency and Skills System (CASS) reference implementation.

Come to the session, learn and perform your own CASS installation & configuration while getting support from CASS experts!

If you would like to follow along and set up CASS you will need:

  • A system or virtual machine running Ubuntu “Trusty” 14.04 or 16.04.
  • (Optional) A domain name or DNS provider pointing at this machine.
  • (Optional) A desire to set up HTTPS. Note that the demonstration will be using https://letsencrypt.org for the sake of expedience. Letsencrypt requires the domain name be resolvable externally, so the system will need to have an external endpoint.

The Install Jam will begin with a walkthrough of setting up CASS, including hooking up a domain name and securing the server. From there, we will cover issues such as upgrades, deleting records, wiping the database, backup and restore, and then a Q&A session.

Please note, Competency Technical Working Group Meetings are geared towards software engineers, computer scientists, and other technical audiences.  The subject matter is typically a deep dive into a complex technical subject.  For high level information on these efforts, keep an eye out for our next Competencies and Credentialing CoP Webinar.
