About This Workshop

This is a 36-hour course delivered over 6 weeks.

Developing a squad of cross-functional DevOps practitioners can be extremely challenging – especially to meet the ever increasing demand of quality at speed & to shift testing to the left to make deployments faster, better and smarter. One tool may not be sufficient for our testing needs – we may have to select a range of toolsets to automate the functional and non-functional elements (performance & security) & orchestrate the solutions in the build pipeline. This will ensure early detection of bugs & foster a culture of collaboration as well. Production deployment can be reduced to mere non-events by deploying values in smaller chunks but continuously. Targeted test automation can also assist in Post production monitoring. We’ll create an environment of failing fast & delivering quality customer outcome.

Topics Covered:

Intro to DevOps

  • Learn what DevOps is and why it’s important through evidence-based research and case studies.

Configuration Management

  • Learn best practices for using Git and Ansible in a DevOps workflow.

Containerization

  • Leverage containers and understand how they fit into modern development workflows using Docker and Kubernetes.

Automated Testing

  • Increase test coverage for your code to build and maintain confidence with unit and integration tests.

Logs and Monitoring

  • Maximize uptime in your production environments and ensure any errors are detected quickly using the ELK stack.

Continuous Integration and Delivery

  • Automate your testing and deployments by using continuous integration pipelines in Jenkins

Resilient Apps and Load Balancing

  • Write stateless applications, discuss deployment options, load balancing and autoscaling to make your applications resilient. We’ll also introduce SecOps and MLOps.
