What’s the purpose of our DevOps Bootcamp?
To provide the technical training, hands-on experience, and optional career-change support to help you become a professional DevOps engineer.
How is our DevOps Bootcamp delivered?
The DevOps Bootcamp is delivered part-time in the evening:
Time: 18:30 - 21:30 UK time
Days: 2 per week (Mon & Wed or Tue & Thur)
Homework and projects: approx 9 hours per week
Workplace simulator: We create an individual work environment for you with your own virtual machine and Google Cloud project, in which you'll create a simulated tech company where you're the DevOps Engineer.
You'll learn and apply the concepts, tools, and strategies that are central to DevOps, for creating end-to-end automated processes that enable your company to deliver reliable, scalable, and secure applications to users, faster.
This approach gives you both the knowledge and hands-on practical experience of being a DevOps Engineer and solving the challenges you'll face in an actual company.
1-2-1 support: Available throughout
Duration: 20 weeks
What will our DevOps Bootcamp cover?

Deep dive into Docker, exploring the Docker ecosystem; get confident with common administration commands and Docker networking
Harness the power of Bash to create custom tools, speed up tasks with automation, and integrate complex systems
Infrastructure as code:
Express, document and provision infrastructure automatically using Terraform
Automate the management of multiple containers using Kubernetes
Create Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery pipelines to automate the entire end-to-end application development and operation lifecycle
Networking and security:
Understand security within a system and what determines strengths and vulnerabilities, and managing security at rest and in transit; understand authentication and digital signature schemes and certification; Learn to use Identity and Access Management (IAM) tools and techniques
Understand networks and how to design them; access and configure remote servers securely; create systems that perform and scale
Deep dive into Google Cloud Platform (GCP) e.g. create networks, run applications, and manage access; get confident with the interface and main concepts; understand the pros and cons of the cloud; use GCP services together with advanced Infrastructure as Code concepts; manage containers on with Google Kubernetes Engine

We designed this DevOps bootcamp for people who want to learn to become DevOps engineers, and:
1. are not in a position to quit their job or train during the working day for 12 weeks
2. want to learn over a longer period to reduce the pressure and explore the material in more depth
Whether you're a systems administrator, a software engineer, or a total beginner looking to change careers, this programme will take you from little or no DevOps experience to a professional standard, within 20 weeks.

How are we different from other schools or DevOps courses?
We keep our class sizes relatively small, so that we can give you the interactive training and personalised support you need. A lot of schools will pack 50+ students onto their cohorts.
Many schools use their recent grads as instructors. We don’t. Your DevOps instructor is a Principal Software Engineer and DevOps Lead with 15+ years of experience. They intuitively know the tech and have a wealth of wisdom.
Complete DevOps training
Lots of schools focus on certification. We don't. Whilst a certificate is great, it's not required, and our training covers all aspects of the role of a DevOps engineer and encompasses much more than a single certification.
As accessible as possible
We make our training as accessible as possible. Offering both part time and immersive training gives you the flexibility to choose the best training option for you; we run our training at a discount to the market; we offer the training remotely so you can learn from anywhere; we record every session in case you miss it or need to recap; we give you whatever support you need.
Applied learning. We set you up as though you are a DevOps Engineer, and we walk you through the processes and challenges faced by teams delivering applications. You get hands on experience in solving exactly the kinds of problems you’ll face in the role of a DevOps Engineer.
