 Inside an IT project  -
Getting Real-World Insights

Why we created this course?
We get a lot of requests from viewers without IT pre-knowledge (electrical engineering, marketing or any other non IT background), who want to start a career in DevOps.
But since DevOps Engineer is not an entry-level IT profession, we decided to create a course that will prepare non-IT people for transitioning into DevOps.

 

However, the course will be a great resource for IT beginners in general. No matter if your end goal is to become a software developer, DevOps engineer, cloud engineer etc.

 
Goal of this course
The course is for complete IT beginners and our goal with it is to give you an equivalent of a junior engineer's work experience and know how the whole Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) works.

  • Know how to write a simple web application with frontend, backend and database.

  • Know how to create a simple virtual server on a public cloud platform and deploy your developed application on the virtual server and make it accessible from browser.
