Infrastructure as Code


Infrastructure provisioning was a manual, slow process before the birth of cloud computing and container technologies. Today, the infrastructure required can be deployed in seconds through Infrastructure as Code.



Automation is the lifeblood of a DevOps Engineer. Automation makes it possible to improve speed, security and reliability. At the same time, it reduces the susceptibility to errors and thus increases the quality of work


Cyber Security

DevOps is about speed, automation and quality. When we increase speed, we often overlook vulnerabilities. With a higher security mindset, security Security features should be integrated right from the start.



Teamwork is very important in today's world. You never work for your personal goals as a DevOps engineer. Every problem that occurs affects the entire team.


Agile 80%
