3 days

Overview

Did you know that Netflix, Spotify and Facebook are rapidly transforming their IT by succesfully implementing DevOps principles?

DevOps training is the starting point for an organization going on the DevOps journey. Improved workflows and faster deployment starts with a core understanding of DevOps fundamental concepts by anyone involved in an agile and/or DevOps team.
