********************************************************************************************************************

 

SRE is the “secret sauce” for large company systems! Site reliability engineers devise more efficient ways of completing tasks that have historically been done by operations teams (and often manually), using software and automation to solve problems and manage production systems. Through code, SRE allows for more scalability and sustainability in the work of operations managing thousands or even hundreds of thousands of machines. 

 

In SRE, it’s important to master the art of balancing new features and reliability for users. To do so, site reliability engineers typically split their time between operations tasks and development work (creating new features, scaling the system, and implementing automation).

 

As our world becomes increasingly digital, SRE is now more important than ever before.

 

This two-month training will teach you how to be a successful SRE. You can expect to learn about best practices in software development, tools and practices to simplify the project development process, and the cloud (specifically AWS). The course will also cover how to implement an optimal and adequate architecture, without leaving security aside. Additionally, you’ll learn about DevOps culture and the implementation of automation pipelines with best practices, deployment strategies, and infrastructure as code.

 

 

About the Training Model:

In the beginning, you will receive a self-study kit, a course project definition, and your assigned mentor information. Throughout the course, you will be able to access 1:1 meetings with your mentor, gain hands-on experience with real-world scenario challenges, and attend active workshop sessions led by Wizeliners.

 

Applying what you’ve learned throughout your journey in challenges, mentoring sessions, and hands-on collaborative spaces, you will culminate the course by developing a capstone project that includes the following three steps:

 

  • Create the source code for an API
  • Learn and experiment with working in a cloud environment
  • Automate the deployment of the API to the cloud

 

At the end of the course, you will be able to confidently apply SRE technical skills using Wizeline’s best practices. If you meet all the requisites, you will be awarded a Wizeline Academy diploma. 

 

What Does the Bootcamp Involve?

 

  • Complete the learning journey
  • Attend the following live sessions:
    • 1 kickoff (1 hour)
    • 5 workshops (1.5 hours / Wednesday at 5:30pm CDT)
  • Access the following support resources as needed:
    • A study group for peer-to-peer support
    • 1:1 mentoring sessions with an expert
  • Deliver mini-challenges and a final capstone project

 

Selection Process

 

You have until August 27 to register. Following registration, you will have three days to complete an English assessment and deliver a technical challenge that consists of two parts. First, you’ll need to solve a CodeSignal challenge within the given time limit; then, you’ll need to pass a practical test about completing the functionality of an API.

 

You will receive the challenge instructions through a confirmation email. On September 3, you will receive an email notifying you as to whether you have been selected to be part of the Bootcamp.
