DevOps Implementation Boot Camp

3 Days

Description

For decades there have been big disconnects between the different roles of the IT shop. We struggle with inherent barriers between development projects and the stable infrastructure needed to deploy and run products. Applications get completed and tested in insulated internal environments without adequate collaboration between production IT staff and infrastructure administrators. Unforeseen challenges plague the production environment, wreaking havoc with deadlines, deliverables, and ultimately the business mission. Security is often a wet blanket at best, and an afterthought at worst. In the meantime, huge backlogs of work and technical debt pile up, chronically eroding the efficiency and agility of the business' IT capability.

This three-day DevOps Implementation training class is loaded with practical real-world tools and techniques. From the nation's largest Agile development trainers comes a comprehensive program to get you started on the road to DevOps success. You will leave this course fully literate in the whole array of available DevOps tools and lessons, ready to select what's right for you and chart a path to holistic long-term IT success in your own organization.

Attendees who complete this course automatically receive the ICP designation after course completion. The ICP-FDO is one of two Continuous Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the DevOps Track. This certification provides an overview of core concepts for DevOps and is geared towards a broad audience of professionals, technical and non-technical. The learning objectives cover areas such as the business case for DevOps, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, accompanying cultural changes, operational considerations, configuration management, etc. Participants who complete this certification will gain an excellent foundation in DevOps concepts and ingredients for a successful transition.
