New Online Bootcamp Covers Key DevOps Principles And Practices


The Linux Foundation and the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) have announced the immediate availability of a new DevOps Bootcamp to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to utilize DevOps principles and practices – including DevSecOps and GitOps – in a variety of technology roles in as little as six months.

This bootcamp starts with an introduction to DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), then moves into specific DevOps toolsets like Jenkins, and finishes with more advanced topics including GitOps and DevSecOps principles and practices.

Included in the DevOps Bootcamp is the all new Implementing DevSecOps (LFS262) course, which will become available later in Q4. It is recommended that this course be completed last in the program, meaning it should be available before participants reach that portion of the bootcamp.

The new course, which will be available standalone in addition to its inclusion in the DevOps Bootcamp, is designed for software developers, site reliability engineers, and DevOps practitioners looking to speed up delivery of more secure code. It focuses on automating security and incorporating it as part of the process, including continuous delivery, Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC), and observability. The goal is to help participants deliver safer, more reliable code faster.

Bootcamp participants will also have access to a bootcamp-specific online forum to interact with other students and instructors, as well as live virtual office hours with course instructors four days per week.

The DevOps Bootcamp is available for immediate enrollment. Through October 19, 2021, the new bootcamp is being offered at an introductory price of $525 with offer code DEVOPS30, a 30% discount over standard pricing of $750.
