Course Description

This course will provide hands-on experience building out a CI/CD pipeline from start to finish. It begins with source control management and ends with a fully-orchestrated pipeline using Jenkins. 

This DevOps CI/CD Pipeline training teaches attendees Git topics from the ground up, allowing students to securely push code to a remote Git repository. Next, attendees learn how to configure servers using a Configuration Management tool from code stored in Git. Finally, they integrate Git and Configuration Management with a CI/CD tool to build, test, and deploy your code into Test, Staging, and Production environments, creating an automated end-to-end DevOps pipeline. 

In this course students gain hands-on experience with Bitbucket, GitHub, GitLab, and Jenkins. Prerequisites Proficiency with the Linux CLI and experience. 

DEV520 is the second course in the DevSecOps Certificate. To complete the certificate students will also enroll in DEV510, & LIN300. Click on each course link for more details and to add to cart.
