DevOps Engineering Course for Beginners

Ecommerce Empire Academy

What is DevOps in the context of software engineering? Learn all about DevOps in this comprehensive course for beginners with three technical tutorials. You will learn what DevOps is, continuous integration, continuous deployment strategies, and application performance management. Many DevOps practices are commonly used in programming and web development, it is important to understand key terms and technologies.

This course often references the MERN (MongoDB, Express JS, React JS, Node JS) technology stack. You will get a series of talks with technology recommendations based on these best practices. There will be several programming examples embedded in these talks. As long as you know the absolute basics of coding and the web, you'll have no problem following along.

    Awesome course. it provides a clear and concise overview of all key aspects of DevOps Engineering.

  3. it’s nice to see the entire workflow of ci/cd and understand how it works. I rlly wish if there’s a step by step tutorial on setting up ci/cd

  4. you are an excllenct lecturer . Percise , clear and gets right to the point. It was a pleasure to hear it. I hope you make more such courses on state of the art technologies
    keep up the good work

  5. Thanks to all paid courses to which I’m unaffordable and it finally sends me to this best free ever happening course. It’s magnificently taught.

  6. Really good course. For the more senior devops guys – what is the alternative technology stack to what the presenter was sharing? I do understand the plug of the layerCI – however I’d like to go through more alternatives to see what can be best solution for small startup with maximum of tens of developers in following 1-2 years.

  7. This is by far the best DevOps course for Beginners. It not only teaches DevOps but more importantly the concepts that everyone should understand and where they fit in the ecosystem of Software Development.
    Thank you Colin!

    I have to ask, how much codding do you need for a DevOps junior role ? And to advance, is python a great way to start ?

    1:22:45 – a slight correction, in the 2nd point – its not because of the “above mentioned reasons” althought I am no expert — every OS has different kernel. so system calls differ. hence the entire low-level architecture differ. since containers only emulate processes and not the whole os, some programs that are OS specific can’t be run on a container. For example you can’t run windows container on linux os but you can run windows and linux containers on windows os because windows kernel natively will support windows containers and linux containers will be supported through WSL that’s why you have to enable it. same reason why you can’t run MacOS container on the same.

    VMs on the other hand, emulate entire OS, so that includes kernel. hence you’re able to run windows and/or MacOS VMs on Linux. containers share the same kernel of the host OS so it’s not possible.

    It is really nice course!
    I just entering to this field – DevOps – and it was the best complex explanation how this job looks like.
    Previous presentations or interviews of DevOps engineers was fun, but empty.
    This one is really cool and provides a full picture!
