Interop ITX is pleased to announce a partnership with the DevOps Institute to offer a certification course for our attendees. This two-day program will allow attendees to earn a DevOps Foundation Certification while at the event, at no additional cost.

The course will take place over two full days, on Monday, April 30 and Tuesday, May 1. An All Access or Summits & Workshops Pass is required for access to the course. 

Because attendees will need to complete a pre-class assignment before the first day, an RSVP is required. You can RSVP for the course by selecting "DevOps Certification Course" as your Workshop and Summit selection during the registration process. 

This sixteen hour course provides an introduction to DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.

At the end of the course, students will receive a code allowing them to take the online test free of charge, on their own time. Please note that you must attend both full days of the course in order to be eligible to take the test.
