DevOps fundamentals course

Higher customer satisfaction through reliable IT systems

Just' developing a new version of an IT system? For many companies, this is unthinkable. If the new release worked flawlessly on the test server, all kinds of errors and defects suddenly appear after the roll-out. And the new functionality that seemed so useful in theory, turns out to be less user-friendly in practice. So, quickly thinking of a solution and then another roll-out. Time-consuming. And also frustrating. Recognisable?

Roll out software versions much faster and more frequently. Meet the security and privacy issues of working in the cloud. Satisfied customers who use your system more often because it is reliable, secure and user-friendly. DevOps makes it possible. DevOps (in full Development Operations) is an agile method for IT project management. The focus of DevOps is on cooperation and communication between software developers and other IT specialists. Improved workflows, faster implementation and higher reliability of your IT systems also increase customer satisfaction. And the throughput time of your development cycle and the risk of errors will be considerably lower.


The three-day DevOps Fundamentals course gives you a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of Agile DevOps. During the course, the complete software development cycle is covered: from product delivery, continuous monitoring and quality measurements to development of new functionalities and releases, and maintenance.
