Event description
Join us for a day of learning: Install and setup some of the most popular DevOps tools in use by major companies around the world today.

About this Event

This training is now online having previously been available in our training centre near London Bridge Station.

Are you ready to learn about all the DevOps tools you need in a hands-on, intensive environment? This is your chance.

As a DevOps professional or aspiring DevOps professional, you understand the power of knowledge. You understand that every time you learn something new, you are adding another brick to your foundation and helping yourself to build for the future. Of course, the learning process is not something that simply happens. You need to take an active role in your growth and development, seeking out the right opportunities for yourself. Fortunately, I can help you there.

Classroom Learning Path:

  • The environment is fully hosted in AWS and you'll receive login details once you arrive online for the course.
  • All you need is Putty installed on your Windows Laptop. Mac users will be able to SSH straight into the environment.
  • Packer: Introduction to Packer (hands-on) to create your first AMI image.
  • Terraform: Introduction to Terraform (hands-on) creating instances in AWS.
  • Ansible: Introduction to the Ansible CLI (command line) and Ansible playbooks.
  • GitLab/Github: Build and configure a GitLab server (or set up a Github repo) for source code control and collaboration for the course.
  • Ansible Project: Build an Nginx load-balancer and two web servers.
  • Jenkins: Build and configure a Jenkins server.
  • Integration: Setup your CI/CD workflow between Jenkins and GitLab/Github.
  • Setup Serverspec to test the actual state of our servers.
  • Integrate code commits in git to run the workflow in Jenkins and see the results on your webserver (CI/CD).
  • Bonus: Install and configure ELK Stack (Elasticsearch) to monitor our VMs using Grafana.

Let me give you a little background on myself. In early 2018, I launched the London Infrastructure As Code meetup. My goal at the time was simple: I wanted to offer people an entry into the exciting world of Infrastructure as code, introducing participants to some of the most common DevOps tools in our field. Right around the same time, an idea occurred to me. People were thrilled to talk about these things and to hear about them at a high level – why not go deeper? Why not offer people a more structured learning opportunity?

Asking those questions of myself, I started to plan for a hands-on training day, which evolved into my Introduction to DevOps Tools course, combining all the talks and sessions that I had run up to then. What I have created is an inclusive course that teaches you how to install and configure the tools necessary to achieve a basic CI/CD workflow: Ansible, Packer, Terraform, AWS, Gitlab/Github, ElasticStack, Jenkins, and ServerSpec.

Now, maybe you're wondering just what sort of a learning experience this is. If you're worried that this experience is going to be dry or that it is going to be a regurgitation of information out of a textbook, don't be! Nope, this is an interactive learning experience, one in which I will guide you as you work. Throughout the course, you are going to "get your hands dirty," installing, configuring and running the applications that I am teaching. You will see real-world code examples, and I will quiz you along the way, testing your skills and capabilities as you launch live servers on Amazon EC2. From there, you will use Terraform to construct VMs in AWS, Ansible to install and configure software, Gitlab/Github to provide source control and collaboration, ElasticStack to add a visual layer to your server monitoring, Jenkins to orchestrate the CI/CD processes, and ServerSpec to test your infrastructure state in AWS.

None of this is new to me. I have seen it all, and I have done it all (almost!). The course that I have devised is one that will hold your attention and push you toward your full potential, inspiring you to learn more and to think creatively. This is the course that you need to take if you are interested in setting up a CI/CD pipeline. Learning all day and training with an expert, you will get to ask questions and collaborate with other students like yourself.

To guarantee the quality of the course, I am limiting the number of spots to 7.

Ready to start the first day of your DevOps life? Let's do it!

Please note as well:

  • You need to be comfortable using Linux from the command line (vi, vim, nano).
  • You need to use your own laptop.
  • You may need to install software on your laptop so will need Admin rights.
  • Training is a tax-deductible expense, and your company could pay for your place. Ask your manager for more details.
