Which course is better selenium or DevOps

What courses would be useful for a DevOps Engineer?


I am a 'DevOps Engineer' based in the UK. I have 2.5 / 3 years of experience in the IT sector; Starting as an apprentice, now as a middle-level engineer who virtually learns / practices Linux / Windows system administration, continuous delivery (Jenkins), continuous integration / version control (Git, Visual Studio), AGILE / SCRUM methodology, configuration management (SaltStack) Machine technologies (AWS EC2, VMware etc.) as well as S3 and BASH / PowerShell scripts.

I don't have any formal qualifications and I don't think so necessary is to excel in this field. However, my manager has asked me and my colleagues to find some courses and / or qualifications that will help us become full DevOps engineers and I think it would be stupid not to!

Can someone recommend useful courses / qualifications?

Linux Academy offers several webinars and tutorials (including sandbox VMs for hands-on experience) on various technologies preferred by DevOps stores, including AWS, Docker, Ansible, Jenkins, Puppet, and many more.




In my opinion, you will benefit the most if you choose the roadmap offered by RH. Check your courses (including DevOps) here

But I would also like to hear opinions from other professionals myself.




I had originally turned this into a comment, but I think it deserves its own answer. After going through a few different certification programs, I definitely think the RHCE (RedHat Certified Engineer) program is worth its weight in gold. RHCSA (RedHat Certified Systems Administrator) is required, and RedHat offers a "Both-at-Once" course in which you have 4 days to cover both subjects and two exams on Friday. (I would only recommend this to someone who is already very familiar with managing a RedHat system.)

If your employer is ready to pick the bill, I think it would be a good place to start. RedHat also offers some DevOpsy-type courses such as OpenStack / OpenShift, Ansible (a very popular DevOps product) and many others.

You can see their offers here.

Edit: I've seen a lot of demand for AWS too, so this would be a good place to start too. Amazon's "Free Tier" offerings are a great place to play around with and get hands-on experience.




Microsoft is running a comprehensive DevOps course in collaboration with EdX. It covers Chef / Puppet for configuration management, selenium for testing, Docker, Nagios, Loggly etc. As Microsoft, of course they use Azure, but all of these tools are open source and therefore the skills are very transferable. All courses are free, you only pay when you want the certificate.
