Well we haven’t had a lot of spare blogging time but we’ve been busy – the agile admins have been hard at work on some more LinkedIn Learning/lynda.com video courses to help make DevOps more accessible for the common man and woman.
James and I did DevOps Foundations: Site Reliability Engineering, which explains our view of what SRE is, and its position in the DevOps arena. This rounds out our “DevOps 201” series, where we delve down into the three practice areas of DevOps – continuous delivery, infrastructure as code, and SRE.
Monitoring is a big part of SRE, but too much to do in the scope of all one course – so at the same time, Peco and I filmed a companion course, DevOps Foundations: Monitoring and Observability! Like the CD and IaC courses, this alternates theory with demos.
Along with the recent DevOps Foundations: Lean and Agile I did with Karthik, we feel like we’ve now completed a curriculum that can introduce you to all the major areas of DevOps and prepare you to grow from there. (Link to lynda.com playlist.) The guys are doing other courses with lynda as well, we’ve kinda gotten addicted to doing them! You can check them all out by your favorite Agile Admin:
I love talking to the folks I meet at conferences and whatnot who have done the courses; let us know what other areas you’d like to get the Agile Admin learning treatment!
We’re not a consultancy or anything – just four practitioners here in Austin who love giving back to the community when we’re not doing our day jobs. We get some royalties per click from the classes, but other than that we don’t have anything to sell you. We got into this to help people make sense of the confusing DevOps landscape and we’ll keep doing it as long as it seems like it’s meeting that goal, so your feedback is needed to let us know if we should keep going and if so on what.
