WHY DEVOPS?

DevOps is a combination of engineering culture, principles, practices, tools, and techniques. All of these combine to increase an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at a faster pace and with more added value than with traditional software development. 

The Alliance for Qualification A4Q is proud to have hosted one of the world‘s largest virtual international conferences. Our mission was to bring together and connect the software quality industry. Over 100 Speakers and 30 countries are participated around the world.

The trainer! Hari obviously has a lot of knowledge and experience, shares publications and examples to make everything clear and is really passionate about the topic!

DEVOPS ESSENTIAL LEVEL

DevOps is about removing the barriers between traditionally siloed teams, development and operations. Under a DevOps model, development and operations teams work together across the entire software application life cycle, from development and test through deployment to operations.

This 8 hours Certified DevOps Essentials course provides the basic knowledge that comes with DevOps. The term is widely used and often misunderstood. Following the course and passing the exam will help set the stage for organizational transformations in software development. This tool-agnostic course helps to understand the principles and practices used within DevOps adoption throughout the journey. It will also serve as a base for future Certified DevOps trainings.  

The Learning Objectives support knowledge about the basic principles and practices of DevOps and are used to create the examination for achieving the Certified DevOps Essentials. In general, all parts of this syllabus are examinable at a K1 and K2 level. That is, the candidate will recognize, remember, and recall a term or concept. The specific learning objectives at K1, K2, K3, K4 levels are shown at the beginning of the pertinent chapter.

DEVOPS PROFESSIONAL LEVEL

DevOps is no longer something that only software development organizations use. In fact, many organizations across different industries have adopted DevOps in one form or another as an enabler for digital transformation. To become a high-performing company that is successful at both software delivery and operational performance, you need to: “Start with foundations, and then adopt a continuous improvement mindset by identifying your unique constraints (or set of constraints). Once those constraints no longer hold your back, repeat the process.” – Accelerate State of DevOps 2019 report.

The 16-hour Certified DevOps Professional course provides the breadth of knowledge and best practices currently applied by high-performing organizations to grow their software delivery and operational performance capabilities.

This tool-agnostic course covers:

  • key drivers and challenges of DevOps adoption
  • principles and practices to be used throughout your journey

DEVOPS PRACTITIONER LEVEL

These intermediate to advanced level courses have been put together based on the market-researched capabilities practiced by high-performing organizations. These courses create a highly interactive and collaborative environment in which to learn various DevOps concepts via practical exercises, games, and simulations. The course content is delivered using a combination of liberating structures, case studies, group discussions, and multimedia sources.

The DevSecOps Practitioner course has been carefully designed to help you understand the principles, practices, tools, and techniques that help you deliver secure software, early and often. This knowledge is essential for all organizations, whether you’re just getting started or you’re looking to accelerate towards maturity.

Software security is no longer optional. Headlines have put pressure on businesses to strike threats with iron fists. Hackers on the other end, are finding alternative ways of accessing private and confidential data. Only a combination of static, dynamic and hybrid application scanning tools, combined with developer training, standards and security intelligence, can improve security in the software development life cycle. We call it DevSecOps, the philosophy that helps detect and prevent software vulnerabilities even before code is written until the software hits end of life.

Make sure that you are capable of fending off cyber-attacks. Equip yourself with the latest knowledge on DevSecOps, so you understand how to better protect your software. This course aims at a hands-on approach to propose solutions for the challenges with good practices, and tooling.
