Please note - the course titles and outlines are based on preliminary information from Microsoft - Titles, content, requirements are subject to change. Additionally - Microsoft requires students to have achieved an MCA Azure certification to earn the MCE. We have combo boot camps which include both the MCA and this MCE.
The NEW Microsoft Certified Expert - Azure DevOps Training & Certification 6 Day Boot Camp focuses on actual job task for designing and building cloud solutions for applications and services.
The Microsoft Certified Azure DevOps boot camp is taught using Microsoft Official Courseware -
While attending this 6 day camp - students will take one exam (AZ-400) to achieve the Microsoft Certified Expert Azure DevOps Engineer certification. This hands on, instructor led live camp teaches the knowledge to develop / deploy applications in an Azure environment along with the knowledge needed for the certification exams (administered while attending camp).
Topics covered in this official boot camp:
Describe the benefits of using source control Migrate from TFVC to Git Scale Git for Enterprise DevOps Implement and manage build infrastructure Manage application config & secrets Implement a mobile DevOps strategy
Explain why continuous integration matters Implement continuous integration using Azure DevOps Configure builds and the options available Create an automated build workflow Integrate other build tooling with Azure DevOps Create hybrid build processes Describe what is meant by code quality and how it is measured Detect code smells Integrate automated tests for code quality Report on code coverage during testing Add tooling to measure technical debt Detect open source and other licensing issues Implement a container build strategy
Differentiate between a release and a deployment Define the components of a release pipeline Explain things to consider when designing your release strategy Classify a release versus a release process, and outline how to control the quality of both Describe the principle of release gates and how to deal with release notes and documentation Explain deployment patterns, both in the traditional sense and in the modern sense Choose a release management tool Explain the terminology used in Azure DevOps and other Release Management Tooling Describe what a Build and Release task is, what it can do, and some available deployment tasks Classify an Agent, Agent Queue and Agent Pool Explain why you sometimes need multiple release jobs in one release pipeline Differentiate between multi-agent and multi-configuration release job Use release variables and stage variables in your release pipeline Deploy to an environment securely, using a service connection Embed testing in the pipeline List the different ways to inspect the health of your pipeline and release by using, alerts, service hooks and reports Create a release gate Describe deployment patterns Implement Blue Green Deployment Implement Canary Release Implement Progressive Exposure Deployment Design a release strategy Set up a release management workflow Implement an appropriate deployment pattern
Recommend artifact management tools and practices Abstract common packages to enable sharing and reuse Inspect codebase to identify code dependencies that can be converted to packages Identify and recommend standardized package types and versions across the solution Refactor existing build pipelines to implement version strategy that publishes packages Manage security and compliance Inspect open source software packages for security and license compliance to align with corporate standards Configure build pipeline to access package security and license rating Configure secure access to package feeds Design an infrastructure and configuration management strategy Implement Infrastructure as Code Manage Azure Kubernetes Service infrastructure Implement infrastructure compliance and security
Apply infrastructure and configuration as code principles Deploy and manage infrastructure using Microsoft automation technologies such as ARM templates, PowerShell, and Azure CLI Describe deployment models and services that are available with Azure Deploy and configure a Managed Kubernetes cluster Deploy and configure infrastructure using 3rd party tools and services with Azure, such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack, and Terraform Define an infrastructure and configuration strategy and appropriate toolset for a release pipeline and application infrastructure Implement compliance and security in your application infrastructure
Design practices to measure end-user satisfaction Design processes to capture and analyze user feedback from external sources Design routing for client application crash report data Recommend monitoring tools and technologies Recommend system and feature usage tracking tools Configure crash report integration for client applications Develop monitoring and status dashboards Implement routing for client application crash report data Implement tools to track system usage, feature usage, and flow Integrate and configure ticketing systems with development team's work management system Analyze alerts to establish a baseline Analyze telemetry to establish a baseline Perform live site reviews and capture feedback for system outages Perform ongoing tuning to reduce meaningless or non-actionable alerts
Plan for the transformation with shared goals and timelines. Select a project and identify project metrics and KPIs. Create a team and agile organizational structure. Develop a project quality strategy. Plan for secure development practices and compliance rules. Migrate and consolidate artifacts. Migrate and integrate source control measures.
Microsoft offers these additional Azure certifications
Microsoft Job Role-based Azure Certifications
Microsoft has aligned Azure certifications and training to job roles - focusing on Admin, Dev or Architect. Each certification requires 2 exams and no certification has any prerequisite certification requirements.
Certification Camps has developed a comprehensive training / delivery format which focuses on learning beyond the core content accessible to any Microsoft training provider. Our program incorporates interactive demonstrations with explanations which go beyond the content of the book. Additional content, videos, labs & demonstrations are provided to expand on advanced topics - providing additional insight and perspective. Certification Camps training is not the typical book & PowerPoint presentation found at any local training center.
As a Microsoft Certified Partner with Gold Learning Competency - we adhere to the strict guidelines, standards and requirements to use Microsoft's exclusive curriculum. More over - our standards go beyond the "minimum requirements" set forth by Microsoft Learning.
We leverage our partnership benefits of courseware customization to build end to end technology training solutions. Students gain practical skills which can be implemented immediately.
At most training centers - learning starts on the first day of class and ends on the last day. Our boot camp training program is designed to offer resources before, during and after.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS FACILITIES
CAMPUS - Certification Camps built a state of the art training center with spacious classrooms, no sound transference between rooms, new desk, Herman Miller Aeron chairs & great common areas.
CLASSROOM SERVERS - Students work on a dedicated Dell 8700 / 8900 with an Intel i7 (6th generation), 32GB memory with 512GB SSD drives.
CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.
COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - break room with Mame Arcade, high end "kitchen" with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.
NEAR BY AMENITIES - Many shops, restaurants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restaurants like Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Panera Bread, Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area. All of these options are offered in a pedestrian walking village.
