NOTE: All sessions are recorded and available for replay. You can take your time to work through the bootcamp.
Week 1 is the official kick-off of the Cloud-Native DevOps bootcamp. In week 1, you’re going to be learning all about the DevOps fundamentals. If you’re a systems administrator or infrastructure engineer breaking into the DevOps space, this is perfect for you to get a jump-start on your journey. If you’re an experienced DevOps pro, this will be a great refresher! We’ll be discussing topics such as CI/CD, source control, coding, and where the industry is heading.
When you’re an infrastructure pro breaking into the development and coding space, it can be intimidating. There’s a bunch of new words, definitions, and acronyms that you may not have heard before. Week 2 is to show you that it can be more simple then you think! Take the PowerShell or Python scripts you’ve written and implement DevOps best practices on them with this weeks lecture and labs.
We’re always hearing about infrastructure-as-code, which is a way to define the services you create today using code. This is a great entry-point into thinking like a developer and truly automating the work that you do to not only save yourself time, but to make the outcome of your work more efficient and shareable to your peers.
Writing code and thinking like a developer is important for DevOps, but having a place to save the code you write is just as important. With platforms like GitHub and practices like source control, you can rip that code out of your documents folder and store it in a safe, secure, and shareable location so you and your team can collaborate together.
Serverless computing has ramped up significantly lately, for good reason. You can take an application running on IIS or Nginx and instead of having to create infrastructure to run the app, you can simply run it in a service. No more having to worry about operating system updates or management. You only have to focus on the code that’s being deployed. This week we’ll dive into what serverless can do for you.
Cyber security is quite possibly one of the most over-looked portions of the cloud. It’s easy to create an Azure Virtual Machine, and just as easy to accidentally give that VM that’s running Active Directory a public IP address that’s open to the world. In week 7, we’re going to dive into some key security topics in the cloud and how you can start securing your environment.
Containerized with Docker and Kubernetes is one of the most used services in the Azure and AWS ecosystem. Every organization wants to be able to go faster in an efficient, secure, and scalable manner, which is what Kubernetes gives you. This week we’ll talk about how to get Kubernetes running in Azure and AWS to ensure you’re scaling your skills at the right speed.
Monitoring an application and ensuring you store logs is the difference between an application running smoothly and a 2:00 AM panic call because the application crashed. A proper monitoring and logging setup is key for any DevOps pro. This week it’s all about putting these use-cases to practice and seeing how Azure and AWS can help in your monitor and logging journey.
Now that we’ve taught you the skills you need to level up your success in the DevOps and development space, it’s time to talk about how you can utilize those skills to get a job or a promotion. We’re going to dive into resume updates, LinkedIn, branding yourself, and ensuring everyone that comes across your pages know you’re a DevOps pro.
