Microsoft Professional Program | DevOps Ship. Iterate. Repeat.
To support companies to be more agile, the lines between development and operations are becoming increasingly blurred. Through continuous integration and deployment, students will learn how to react to changing market conditions.
Microsoft Professional Program for DevOps
DevOps is the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to end users. Learn about continuous integration and deployment, infrastructure as code, testing, databases, containers, and application monitoring: skills necessary for a DevOps culture in your workplace.
9 REQUIRED COURSES | 8-16 HOURS PER COURSE | 6 SKILLS
Introduction to DevOps Practices
This course provides an introduction to the core values, principles and practices involved in implementing of DevOps solutions. It will also cover the essentials of creating a release pipeline that includes continuous integration techniques, continuous testing practices, application monitoring, treating infrastructure and configuration as code, and deploying frequently and automatically.
LEARN MORE Infrastructure as Code
Learn how automation can be used as part of a DevOps solution, implementing infrastructure deployment, and configuration, as code, to deliver stable environments rapidly, reliably and at scale.
LEARN MORE Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment
Learn about the tools and techniques for implementing continuous integration builds, automated testing, and continuous delivery/deployment using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and how VSTS integrates with third party and common open source software tools.
LEARN MORE Configuration Management for Containerized Delivery
Learn how you can create, deploy and configure your containerized applications in DevOps environments, as well as deploying containers in a cluster using Microsoft Azure services such as Azure Container Service (ACS) and Azure Service Fabric, as well as using continuous delivery infrastructure such as Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), third party and open source tools.
LEARN MORE Testing in Continuous Delivery Pipelines DevOps Testing
Learn about core testing concepts and best practices as well as how to implement various testing types, such as Unit, API (Integration), Performance, Functional, Acceptance, Automated (Coded) UI testing and other types, as well as the analysis of such tests using various toolsets, such as Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), Application Insights and third party frameworks such as Selenium, in DevOps environments.
LEARN MORE Database Integration in Continuous Delivery Environments DevOps for Databases
Learn how to include your database in a DevOps process and understand the challenges of working with various data stores while developing and changing your software at a rapid pace in DevOps environments.
LEARN MORE Application Monitoring and Feedback Loops
Learn about general application monitoring and feedback loop practices and principles, how feedback is used in different stages of the value stream, and its benefits, as well as the different kinds of telemetry that are used and who can benefit from telemetry. Also learn about health and performance monitoring with Application Insights as well as Log Analytics and Operations Management Suite (OMS), and third-party monitoring tools.
LEARN MORE Architecting Apps
(2 options available)
DevOps for Mobile Apps
Learn about developing, deploying and managing Mobile applications in DevOps environments. Learn about how DevOps practices such as continuous Integration, continuous deployment, automated testing and application monitoring can be built into the complete DevOps lifecycle from, development to distribution, of a mobile application.
LEARN MORE Architecting Distributed Cloud Applications
Learn the technology-agnostic patterns and engineering trade-offs of architecting distributed cloud applications, taking DevOps practices and principles into consideration, with emphasis on high availability.
LEARN MORE Microsoft Professional Capstone : DevOps
Validate the skills and knowledge that you have obtained by taking the DevOps series of courses by completing the DevOps Professional Capstone project. This capstone project will provide you with several core DevOps scenarios and tasks that you will implement, and upon successful completion you will obtain the DevOps Microsoft Professional Program (MPP) credential.
DevOps Engineers learn by doing
Each course in the Microsoft Professional Program in DevOps features hands-on labs so you can practice with the most sought after skills. Assessments that require more than just memorization ensure that you have mastered these new skills.
Learn on your own time
All courses are available online and on demand – so whether you plan to spend a couple of hours per day or a couple of hours per week, you can work on these skills at the pace that is right for you. And since the curriculum consists of massive open online courses (MOOC) on edX, you can watch the videos on your tablet or phone.
