DevOps: Extreme Automation training
This is a 3-day online course focused on solving challenges that organisation's face when implementing automation and DevOps initiatives.
DevOps is a growing movement that encourages closer collaboration of developers and system operations to help business goals to be achieved efficiently and on time. Software development and infrastructure scaling are very fast-paced nowadays. That brings a necessity of larger automation, measurement and information sharing for all involved processes.
This 3-day workshop focuses on solving challenges that organisations face when implementing DevOps initiatives. It introduces principles of DevOps and tools that help reach full automation of infrastructure provisioning and software delivery. Theoretical background as well as practical hands-on examples of tools like AWS/GCP, Ansible, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, Prometheus, Grafana, Linkerd, Serverless and many others are given during this workshop.
Unique content - real-life use cases, modern infrastructure, CI/CD/GitOps principles shown in practice.
- Join from the convenience of your office or home.
Live and interactive - you can ask questions in the chat and get live clarifications.
Q&A session in the end of each day - you will to get answers to more complex questions in a 1-hour long Q&A session.
Practical exercises with solutions - lots of simple and not-so-simple tasks to practice with during the course; Solutions will be provided afterwards.
Video recordings will be available after the course - you can revisit some topics later.
Additional home work - for those who want to practice more after the course; Homework will be reviewed and supplemented by constructive feedback.
Lifetime e-mail support - you can get answers on anything related to the course content as well as advice based on your company specific situation.
Quizzes and polls during the course - learning should be fun.
Certificate of attendance - you will get a shareable online certificate.
Exam after the course - you may pass an optional 1-hour exam and get your score printed on the certificate.
You earn eXtreme Automation certificate by attending the course.
