This development strategy helps organizations to regularly create and update their products. Whereas, traditional ‘waterfall’ development model used to take a lot of time. Today, DevOps is all about the automation and unification of the development processes.

This DevOps certificate course is focused on providing a comprehensive tour of the DevOps ecosystem. The student will be able to explore the entire software development process, which would result in scalability, rapid delivery, security, and collaboration. We will be designing an application with AWS to make them scalable and highly available.

LSET trainers will be sharing their decades of experience in DevOps Tools and Training to give you One to One guidance. You will be working on DevOps tools, Jenkins, Github, and Sonarqube, Docker to develop Continuous Integration Continuous Deployment that uses Jenkins, with sonarqube, Ansible, and docker. It is very important for the DevOps practitioner to understand the importance of auto-scaling and high availability and how these strategies are much better than traditional architecture.

We have also joined hands with relevant IT companies to provide you with the most updated syllabus according to the industry standards. This course will be helping IT practitioners, IT service managers, product owners, test engineers, application or service developers, and project/test/process managers.

What Skills do DevOps Engineers Need?

Agile Development: DevOps engineers help teams organize work in shorter iterations, called sprints, to get through an increased number of releases. They also help map out the work that teams must complete in upcoming iterations, and incorporate feedback from each version of a software platform to address future issues.

Continuous Integration (CI): DevOps engineers make sure that new code coordinates properly with an existing codebase. It’s their job to ensure consistency in development and avoid the inclusion of components that would hurt performance and negatively affect users.

Continuous Delivery (CD): DevOps engineers oversee the continual delivery of new code via testing and automation. They look for ways to remove waste and ensure that code is consistently ready-to-deploy. DevOps engineers should understand how to leverage popular CI/CD tools like Jenkins to manage different aspects of continuous delivery.

Orchestration: One essential skill often relied upon by DevOps engineers is being able to analyze current practices and look for ways to improve efficiency by removing manual tasks. The orchestration process makes sure any repetitive steps performed by humans get transformed into an automated process to speed up deployments. Such functions include implementing database changes or launching a new web server.

Source / Version Control: Source control tools, also called version control tools, help DevOps engineers cut down on development time and improve their chances of having successful deployments. These tools facilitate the tracking and storage of any changes to software projects over different periods. Popular source control tools include GitHub, Subversion, AWS CodeCommit, and Microsoft Team Foundation Server.

Container Management: Containers make it easier for DevOps engineers to set up hosting of different applications in a portable environment. They let you create exact copies of a system required for deployment. Containers are more lightweight than the virtual machines used for this purpose in the past. Examples of popular container technology include Docker, Kubernetes, Microsoft Containers, and DigitalOcean. Using containers helps DevOps engineers ensure consistency across multiple environments.

Programming Knowledge: Having a programming background is crucial to success as a DevOps engineer. Some languages that a prospective DevOps engineer may want to learn include Java, Python, PHP, C#, Ruby, G and JavaScript.
