DevOps Boot Camp Training – GTDBT

Course Description

DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to delivery applications and services at high velocity. Under a DevOps model, a development and operations teams are no longer “siloed”. Quality assurance team also becomes more tightly integrated with development and operations and throughout the application lifecycle. GuruTeam’s DevOps BootCamp course covers the DevOps principles and tools required for end-to-end implementation of DevOps.
