Certified DevOps Fundamentals

DevOps is a method in which developers work closely with operations. Thanks to this approach, software is delivered faster and the quality is continuously improved. Do you already work agile to develop your software? But do you still feel it can be improved? Then you should learn to use DevOps. With this training you’ll learn how to set up a DevOps team and discover what you need to start a team.

The DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA), co-founded by Xebia, is an open, global initiative to advance DevOps competences and professionalize the state-of-the-practice. DASA provides certified training from the foundation to expert level worldwide. Led by DASA master trainers, this highly interactive, three-day training gives you the skills, knowledge, and tools you need to achieve competency (Level 2 certification) in DevOps.

"The best part of the training was that it provided me with a comprehensive overview of how currently successful businesses are able to innovate yet still deliver high quality services, giving them a competitive edge." - Director Software Engineering
