New Webinar Available
Have you ever signed up for a live webinar which is a few months away, only to then have something come up that prevents you from attending? Most if not all of us have had this disappointing experience. This is why we’ve changed our webinar series to play on an on-demand basis.
So, our webinar, “Security Updates of Shared Libraries Without Restarts with KernelCare+” is now available on-demand. The QA session is still interactive on the webinar interface, however. You can ask your questions right on the webinar page and the KernelCare team will answer you directly.
More Video Tutorials
Three new video tutorials were published on YouTube’s LearnLinuxTV this August. You can learn about Live-patching the Linux kernel with KernelCare or Live-patching the shared libraries with KernelCare. We also encourage you to check out our new video about the CentOS ELS Bundle & KernelCare.
