Modernization and automation owe a lot to software engineering. DevOps is software development at its best.

By breaking down the silos that plague traditional architectures and methodologies, DevOps has transformed the IT industry forever. Unifying everything in software development and software operations, it synergizes automation and monitoring at all stages of software development.  This leads to enhanced agility with smaller development cycles, increased frequency of deploying, and highly stable software releases that are in sync with all business goals.

The DevOps Plus course takes a comprehensive look at the discipline that covers all key concepts, methodologies, and tools, regardless of your understanding of the IT technologies and practices. Starting with a foundational introduction to DevOps, it covers the concepts of virtualization, its benefits, and the many virtualization products that play a significant role in both learning and implementing the DevOps culture. You’ll also learn about DevOps tools such as Vagrant, Version Control Systems, Docker, Containerization, and Configuration Management with Chef, SaltStack, Puppet, and Ansible.

This course focuses on both mid-level and advanced concepts, including open-source monitoring application Nagios, its plug-ins, and its use as a GUI. The CI/CD Pipeline Automation covers the Advanced DevOps concepts that are covered in detail along with Docker container clustering using Docker Swarm and Kubernetes.

This course is highly recommended for software developers, project and product managers, software architects, and network engineers. Even new graduates with academic degrees in IT, computer science, and other related fields can opt for this course for a great future ahead in the software development industry.

You have been hired Sr. DevOps Engineer in Abode Software, they want to implement DevOps lifecycle in their company. You have been asked to implement this lifecycle as fast as possible. ABC Software’s is a product-based company Following are the specifications of the lifecycle:
  1. Git Workflow has to be implemented
  2. Code Build should automatically be triggered once commit is made to master branch or develop branch.
    1. If commit is made to master branch, test and push to prod
    2. If commit is made to develop branch, just test the product, do not push to prod
  3. The Code should be containerized with the help of a Dockerfile. The Dockerfile should be built every time there is a push to    Git-Hub. Use the following pre-built container for your application:  a. The code should reside in '/var/www/html'
  4. Once the website is built, you have to design a test-case, which will basically check if the website can be opened or not. If yes,  the test should pass. This test has to run in headless mode, on the test server.
  5. The above tasks should be defined in a Jenkins Pipeline, with the following Jobs
    1. Job 1 - Building Website
    2. Job 2 - Testing Website
    3. Job 3 - Push to Production
  6. Since you are setting up the server for the first time, ensure the following file exists on both Test and Prod server in /home/ubuntu/config- management/status.txt. This file will be used by a third-party tool. This should basically have the info whether apache is installed on the system or not.
    1. The content of this file should be based on whether git is installed or not.
    2. If apache is installed => Apache is Installed on this System"
    3. If apache is not installed => "Apache is not installed on this System"
  7. Create a Monitoring Service for the website on the Production server Architectural Advice:
    1. Create 3 servers on AWS "t2.micro"
    2. Server 1 - should have Jenkins Master, Puppet Master and Nagios Installed

Course Description

DevOps is a combination of cultural philosophies, practices and tools which help organizations break the silos between development and operation functions while enhancing their ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity. DevOps helps organizations be more agile and be faster than traditional software development and infrastructure management processes & practices.

The future of DevOps is very promising. Organizations all over the world are embracing the DevOps culture. DevOps is one of the fastest evolving fields in the IT space today, as it keeps embracing newer tools and methodologies quickly. A simple search over popular job portals like and will bring back thousands of open job openings that require DevOps skills. Try doing the same search again six months or even just three months down the line, and the number would have only gone up. This would give you a fair idea of how much demand there is for DevOps professionals.
