This accelerated Designing and Implementing Microsoft DevOps course, provides the knowledge and skills to design and implement DevOps processes and practices.

In just 3 days, you’ll learn how to plan for DevOps, use source control, scale Git for an enterprise, consolidate artifacts, design a dependency management strategy, manage secrets, implement continuous integration, implement a container build strategy, design a release strategy, set up a release management workflow, implement a deployment pattern, and optimize feedback mechanisms.

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the Microsoft exam, and achieve your Designing and Implementing Microsoft DevOps certification.

Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get certified at twice the speed of the traditional training and get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.


This course is ideal for:

  • People interested in designing and implementing DevOps processes or in passing the Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions certification exam.

"Der Trainer ist kompetent, bringt den Stoff verständlich bei."
Anonym (19.6.2023 (Montag) bis 21.6.2023 (Mittwoch))

"Die Inhalte, die notwendig, wichtig und brauchbar sind, wurden umfangreich hervorgehoben. Die Zeit darf nicht kürzer sein, als angedacht."
MS. (19.6.2023 (Montag) bis 21.6.2023 (Mittwoch))

"Sehr kompakter Kurs. Viel Stoff in wenig Zeit, aber schaffbar. Sehr gut war auch der 24h Zugriff auf die Schulungsinfrastruktur. Trainer sehr kompetent, mit viel Wertlegung auf die Praxis."
Marc Beyrich, CGI Deutschland B.V. & Co. KG. (12.6.2023 (Montag) bis 14.6.2023 (Mittwoch))

"Gut organisiert, großartige Verpflegung, sehr schöne Gegend. Leider keine Klimaanlage. Training war auch nicht so, wie ich mir das vorgestellt habe. Benutzung zu vieler Microsoft Materialien, die es kostenfrei gibt, die ich mir schon vorher angeschaut habe. Die auch eher zeigen, wo etwas ist und nicht notwenigerweise, warum etwas gemacht wird. Ich hätte mir gewünscht, dass wir einen Kundeauftrag bekommen hätten, den wir dann gemeinsam in Power BI umgesetzt hätten. Das hätte sicher mehr genützt, als einfach die Labs nachzuklicken. Auch die Zeiten waren grenzwertig. Wir haben um 8:30 Uhr angefangen und um 22:30 Uhr aufgehört. Das hätte sicher anders geregelt werden können."
Anonym (12.6.2023 (Montag) bis 14.6.2023 (Mittwoch))

"Kurs war intensiv, viel gelernt, auch Spaß gehabt. Kurze Wege zwischen Hotelzimmer und Trainingsraum fand ich gut für die Pausen und allgemeine, so konnte die Zeit effizient und flexibel genutzt werden. All-inclusive-Konzept auch top."
Philipp Meyer. (24.4.2023 (Montag) bis 29.4.2023 (Samstag))
