In this 1-day hands-on lab, we give you the opportunity to be a true DevOps engineer for a day!

The theme of the day is: you build it, you run it.

During the day, you and your team will be responsible to keep a webshop up and running. Of course, this will not be easy. In a gamified simulation, you will face a number of challenges that will disrupt your site. You will work together to first detect the disruption on the web shop we provisioned for you. Next, you respond with a quick fix to get your shop up and running again. After that, you need to take the time to figure out a permanent solution to automatically recover or prevent the disruption from happening in the first place.

You will be provided with a fully provisioned infrastructure in Azure, operation pipelines in Azure DevOps and a functional application. This way you can focus on the real work!

You should come prepared with a laptop but most importantly curiosity and a mindset to learn and improve. We'll apply tool agnostic practices so regardless whether you develop in c#, deploy with Jenkins or operate with Kubernetes this will be a great day to get into DevOps and SRE.

You will learn:

  • Hands-On experience with DevOps practices
  • Hands-On experience with DevOps practices About Azure reliability features
  • Apply SRE practices with help of Azure and Azure DevOps
