Designing and Implementing Microsoft DevOps Solutions Training Information

  • Requirements

    • Students should have fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles. It would be helpful to have experience in an organisation that delivers software.
    • It is recommended that you have experience working in an IDE, as well as some knowledge of the Azure portal. However, students who may not have a technical background in these technologies, but who are curious about DevOps practises as a culture shift, should be able to follow the procedural and expository explanations of continuous integration regardless.
  • Who Should Attend
