  • Course Continuous Delivery : Content

    In the course Continuous Delivery participants learn how a continuous delivery process for automatic testing and deployment of software applications can be set up with Docker and Jenkins. Through Continuous Delivery the quality of software can be improved and the processing time can be shortened.

    Intro Continuous Delivery

    The course Continuous Delivery primarily explains the principles of Continuous Delivery. In a Continuous Delivery process software is released frequently in short cycles, tested and deployed via an automated deployment pipeline.

    Docker Containers

    Next the use of Docker Containers for quickly launching a furnished environment is discussed. The operation, architecture and configuration of Docker Containers is covered in detail.

    Jenkins Essentials

    Attention is also paid to the Jenkins tool for automating software building. This involves setting up a Jenkins Continuous Integration Pipeline and explaining the content and structure of the Jenkins file.

    Acceptance Testing

    The automation of Acceptance Tests with Docker and Cucumber is also part of the course program. And there is attention for the different environments in a Continuous Delivery process and the tests that are done in them.

    Configuration Management

    Then Application and Infrastructure Configuration and the use of the configuration language Ansible with Playbooks, Handlers and Variables are treated.

    Advanced Topics

    Finally a number of advanced Continuous Delivery aspects are discussed, such as dealing with changes in the Database, parallelizing pipelines and the use of shared libraries.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
