Welcome to the Yellow Belt DevOps Dojo - Stripe 2 Katacoda course.

The DevOps Dojo Yellow Belt - Second Stripe

This course is the second stripe of your DevOps Dojo Yellow Belt.

It is made of N modules:

  • Infrastructure As Code
  • Trunk Based Development
  • Test Automation Strategy
  • Test Automation Strategy - Layer 1 Unit Tests
  • Test Automation Strategy - Layer 2 Performance Tests

Each modules awards a badge. Once you complete all modules, you will get the second stripe on your Yellow Belt. Assuming of course you have completed stripe 1.

Katacoda environment

The modules make use of Katacoda environments. Those are ephemeral environments which are created just for you, on the fly. They will time out after one hour. The good news is that you can explore around and get out of the script: it is your own environment.

So, go grab a cup of your favorite tea or coffee, close your email, put your phone on plane mode, and let's get started!

Welcome module

In this Welcome module lab, we will get you started and setup a dedicated environment for you, to allow you complete the labs for the other modules in the Yellow Belt DevOps Dojo - Strip 2 at your own pace.

First, to begin let us remind you of the story of a business formed by the CEO Charlie, a DevOps team, an application and its delivery chain (continuous delivery pipeline).

Once upon a time, not so long ago in galaxy not so far away...


This is it, you are now all set to start Stripe 2 of your DevOps Dojo Yellow Belt!

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.


The story

Welcome Back.

This is the ongoing story of a business, a team, an application and its delivery chain (their continuous delivery pipeline).

The team is part of the IT organization of a large Pet Clinic. The Pet Clinic runs its business on a Java application. The application includes features to manage a list of clients (pet owners), their pets, and a list of veterinarians with their specialties.

The Pet Clinic IT team develops, tests, deploys and supports the Java application.
