  • Course DevOps Fundamentals : Content

    In the course DevOps Fundamentals participants learn the benefits of a close collaboration between Development and Operations. By using DevOps organizations can enhance the speed of the production and deployment of software applications and services and make them better. DevOps also includes the automation of code deployment, avoiding human error and making the process reproducible.

    DevOps Background

    The course starts with an overview of the circumstances that led to the introduction of DevOps. It is discussed how in the time before DevOps development, testing and deployment activities were isolated activities with their own planning and how a lot of time was lost as a result. The relationship between DevOps and the Agile Development methodology is also treated.

    Ownership and Accountability

    Subsequently attention is paid how these activities are coordinated in DevOps, resulting in a faster turn around time. The importance of ownership and accountability for enhancing quality in DevOps is also emphasized. And the role of automating tests and deployment is also discussed.

    Development Phases

    The different phases of the development and deployment process and how they are coordinated in DevOps are treated. Attention is paid to the management of planning, development, testing, release and deployment.

    DevOps Culture

    And not only the technique is part of the course. The DevOps culture, the importance of hard and soft skills, the various roles and responsibilities, troubleshooting and problem solving are also part of the course program.


    Finally attention is paid to the tooling that can be used in DevOps processes such as Chef, Puppet or Ansible for configuration management, Nagios for monitoring and Jenkins, Bamboo or TeamCity for continuous integration.

    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.
