Successful, lucrative organizations like Google or Amazon can implement, test, and deploy small increments of value to their customers and stakeholders every few seconds. Thanks to ever-evolving technology, you can do the same. The capability to deliver value instantly to customers and stakeholders is possible for everyone.

Developing a secure, high-quality rapid delivery system isn’t easy. It requires a company-wide commitment to training staff on the why, what, and how, then spending time and money incrementally expanding and improving your DevOps practices and delivery pipeline.

NextUp Solutions’ two-day DevOps Essentials course teaches you how to apply the fundamental DevOps principles and practices to help you develop a culture, customized technical roadmap, and repeatable process that accelerate your time to value.

This course uses interactive discussions and activities to teach DevOps fundamentals. The instructor provides an open space where each student is encouraged to ask questions, challenge learnings, and explore how the practices and principles can be tailored to their needs.
