What You will learn?

Cloud DevOps Engineer

Learn to design and deploy infrastructure as code, build and monitor CI/CD pipelines for different deployment strategies, and deploy scalable microservices using Kubernetes. At the end of the programme, you’ll combine your new skills by completing a capstone project.

Fundamentals of Cloud Computing

Learn the fundamentals of cloud computing while being introduced to computing power, security, storage, networking, messaging, and management services in the cloud.

Cloud Infrastructure Deployment

Learn how to deploy the underlying infrastructure components that provide security and services to our servers by writing scripts using CloudFormation, AWS’ tool for Infrastructure as Code. You will use CloudFormation to deploy infrastructure patterns used in the industry broadly and can be deployed to deploy any cloud application. You will begin with initial business requirements that you will turn into Cloud Architecture Diagrams. Then you will deploy this architecture using CloudFormation.

Continuous Delivery, Integration & Deployment

Learn how to stretch for Continuous Delivery as your “true north” while building CI/CD systems that automate the “stuff” between developers and the cloud. You’ll gain essential knowledge and put it into practice as you learn about Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment. You’ll combine your existing Cloud Formation and AWS knowledge with new tools like Ansible and Circle CI. You’ll also learn how to keep an eye on your deployments with proactive monitoring and alerting.

Kubernetes

Learn to create and deploy a Kubernetes cluster, configure Kubernetes autoscale, and load test a Kubernetes application. You’ll learn to operationalise existing and new microservices and apply container best practices. You’ll learn to deploy Machine Learning microservices that are elastic and fault-tolerant. You’ll learn to pick the appropriate abstraction for microservices: Serverless (AWS Lambda) or Container Orchestration (Kubernetes).
