DevOps Master-class (aka eXtreme Automation)


DevOps is a growing movement that encourages closer collaboration of developers and system operations to help business goals to be achieved efficiently and on time. Software development and infrastructure scaling are very fast-paced nowadays. That brings a necessity of larger automation, measurement and information sharing for all involved processes.

Who should attend

This course is designed for software developers, software architects, technical project managers, system administrators willing to understand principles of DevOps and introduce more automation in software delivery processes inside their organizations.

Why attend

In order to stay competitive, organizations need to improve collaboration and tooling involved in software delivery. This training material was carefully crafted to help you to maximize the outcome of your DevOps initiatives.

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Understand principles behind DevOps
  • Understand principles behind effective configuration management
  • Use provisioning tools (Puppet, Chef or Ansible) to configure infrastructure
  • Use virtualization tools like VirtualBox, Vagrant, Docker and AWS EC2
  • Integrate various steps into software delivery pipeline and monitoring tools


This 2-day workshop focuses on solving challenges that organisations face when implementing DevOps initiatives. It introduces principles of DevOps, tools that help reach full automation of infrastructure provisioning and software delivery by combining theoretical background with practical hands-on lab exercises:
