DevOps is a professional and cultural movement designed to improve the processes involved with developing and running computer software and systems. It does this by focusing on communication and collaboration between software developers and operations engineers. DevOps has the potential to improve the products we create as an industry, and the health and well-being of the people creating them.

In this one-day introductory training, you will identify actionable strategies and tools that can be used to leverage DevOps to implement noticeable, long-lasting improvements to your culture and development processes in your environment, regardless of your level and role.

What you will learn:

You will get hands-on experience with building and deploying a sample application, collaboratively learning a combination of optimized patterns from development and operations. You will spend the day working together with other attendees while learning key patterns around DevOps practices, with these themes:

  • Recognizing your Devops Narrative - What, why, and how
  • Application deployment planning
  • Infrastructure as code
  • Introducing repeatable, testable change
  • Measuring impact and value of change


  • Developers, architects, operations engineers, and anybody interested in learning how to improve workflows
  • Slides and code will be provided electronically after the training.
  • Participation will be limited to 30 attendees.


  1. Completion of training materials on or attended Fundamentals. You don't have to use chef in your environment, as the concepts could be taken and applied with other tooling but you do need to understand the terminology (resource, recipe, cookbook, etc.).
  2. Basic scripting ability (bash/python/ruby/perl)
  3. Basic git familiarity.

Computer Requirements:

Technology Introduced:

  1. git
  2. jenkins
  3. chef
  4. nagios
  5. statsd/graphite

At the end of the training we expect audience members to have gained an understanding of how to design and implement these DevOps-style workflows at their own organizations.
