DevOps CI/CD Pipeline

Course Description

Building, testing and deploying code doesn’t have to be complex and time-consuming. This course will teach students how to create and use an end-to-end CI/CD pipeline that validates, automates, and stores code changes for faster, more secure delivery. In this course, attendees will learn the software and processes for building, testing, and deploying code. Upon completion of this course, attendees will know how to operate and maintain a DevOps pipeline that ensures only high-quality and approved code gets deployed into production, backs up all code in source control management, and automates code changes.

Course Agenda 

  • Git source and version control management. This course will teach you the fundamentals of using git so you can effectively share, collaborate, backup and version any code. 
  • Configuration management. We’ll teach you how to configure and spin up servers (web, database, load balancer, or any application servers), using a configuration management tool and code stored in git. 
  • Testing and continuous integration /  continuous deployment. Learn to integrate git and configuration management with a CI/CD tool to build, test, and deploy code into test, staging, and production environments, creating an automated end-to-end DevOps pipeline.
