Devops user training. If you don't work in a technical field, you can still benefit from DevOps training. Try and imagine doing your job without computer programs: a computer program takes manual tasks and automates them so you can do the thinking. DevOps does the same thing for business operations: tedious and ultimately needless tasks can be automated so that the company operates like a program for efficiency and profit. This training opens the door to understanding how DevOps does that, and how you can implement it.

New or aspiring IT professionals. DevOps has been around for ten years, and more and more companies are recognizing the extreme value of it and implementing it. But "too many cooks spoil the soup" — and those companies don't exclusively need people who know how to set-up and run a DevOps implementation, they need people who can operate inside a DevOps environment. Be a more effective team player and learn how DevOps can make you a better IT professional with this training.
