End To End Practical DevOps Workshop(6 Days)

While most devOps programs are either too theoretical or directly jump into tools, we tend to miss on the bigger picture on where does things start actually and how does it reaches the end point and beyond.

Software development starts with an idea. The idea gets fulfilled when it goes live and is used or is available for use by the end users.

The entire process from idea to go live can be show cased by the following three onion rings.

What you will learn and certifications

  • The 6 days workshop takes you through this entire journey from ideation to go live and monitoring, covering the entire classic DevOps Lifecycle
  • You will learn the conceptual agile tenets which lead to importance of agile mindset and how idea can be collaboratively developed into BDD scenarios – how this leads to coding and before that mocking.
  • Followed by this you will learn how does code configuration works, code quality and the remaining part of the DevOps lifecycle
  • The End to End Practical DevOps workshop is broken into two distinct phases.

    PART 1 : 3 days of initial program covers ideation to starting point of coding using BDD, cucumber, Junit and Mockitos. There is a practical assessment exam and certification post this first part.

    PART 2 : Last 3 days of the program then deep dives into Software Configuration Management (SCM) and maven as a build tool, Continuous Integration (CI) + CI USING Jenkins, Checking Code Coverage [Cobertura],Infrastructure Management(docker and Ansible),Automated Deployment Tool – Ansible followed by Continuous Delivery. There is a practical assessment exam and certification post this second part. You will get a CP-DOF (Certified Professional – DevOps Foundation) certificate from DevOps++ alliance.
