Who our DevOps Bootcamp is for

It's designed for Software Engineers, System Administrators, Network Engineers, QA Testers, or anyone in tech who wants hands-on, instructor-led training on the toolchains and technologies that streamline the software delivery process, automate infrastructure provisioning, and enable continuous improvement and feedback.

What is our DevOps Workplace Simulator

We provide you with your own virtual machine, and access to a Google Cloud project, where you'll create your own mock tech startup, with you as the DevOps Engineer.

As we progress through the modules of the course, you'll apply your training to transform your startup, and in doing so, gain practical, first-hand experience of solving the real-world challenges you'll face as a DevOps Engineer.

Neil, Technical Product Owner

I recently completed The Jump's Digital DevOps Bootcamp, and I must say it was an incredible experience from start to finish. The curriculum was expertly designed, covering everything from basic principles to advanced techniques in DevOps practices and tools.

The hands-on projects and real-world simulations were particularly valuable. I highly recommend this bootcamp to anyone

Your DevOps learning journey

Weeks 1-3: Intro and Tooling

Once we've introduced you to your own dedicated virtual machine and how to access it with SSH, you'll learn about Linux, Version Control and Markdown


Weeks 4-7: Build a Start-up

Build your understanding of both the Software Development Life Cycle and the architecture and requirements of web applications by setting up its infrastructure. Create servers and databases, create containers with Docker and orchestrate them. Learn to create staging environments, manage security certification, documentation, and backup and recovery.

Docker Compose

Weeks 8-12: Automate Tasks

Move from click-ops to creating fully automated CI/CD pipelines. Learn to automate workflows, docker image creation and testing; Orchestrate containers with Kubernetes; learn about artefact promotion; load balancing and certification management.

GitHub Actions

Weeks 13-14: Migrate with Kubernetes

Apply what you've learnt in the previous module to use Kubernetes to deploy to staging and then production environments. Learn to monitor the health of your Kubernetes cluster with Prometheus, visualise it with Grafana, and log it with an EFK stack.

EFK Stack

Weeks 15-18: Scale-up phase

Move beyond on premises infrastructure to cloud based infrastructure with Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and programatically provision infrastructure with Infrastructure as Code using Terraform. Learn to use Google Compute Engine, and GCP Artifact Registry

Google Cloud Platform
Google Compute Engine

Weeks 19-20: Completion

Combine what you learn in the previous module together with Google Kubernetes Engine and Workload Identity Federation, to move all your simulated company's infrastructure and CI/CD processes from local servers to GCP, provisioning infrastructure with Terraform. You have now built a complete end-to-end CI/CD pipeline for automating the full Software Development Life Cycle, and deployed it to the cloud, to scale up and down with demand.

Lee, upskilling as a Software Engineer

I'd spent about a year considering whether to do this course, and I'm so glad I took 'the jump'.

I took this course on to extend my software engineering skillset. The curriculum is specifically designed and built in a way to mimic a real world environment, being presented with actual challenges to learn about and solve. Anto, the instructor was excellent and has significant experience from the field which he was able to fully bring to the course. I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing this course!
