DevOps Implementation Boot Camp (ICP-FDO)

Learn to implement the DevOps culture across all your teams and all of your IT value chains.

A DevOps practice is built on a foundation of culture, tools, and structured collaboration. Cross-functionality of teams is critical, as is ongoing support from leaders and managers. Automation and high-efficiency tools support everything. Above all, the essential ingredient is the transformation in mentality of your IT teams from a focus on individual job roles to one of unified team mission. That transformation requires trust, new tools, and a tangible plan. It requires speed, high visibility, and an Agile mentality for everyone involved in developing, deploying, and maintaining applications.

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