I got full value from Learnkart’s DevOps course. This is the best ever course I have done and simplae reason is that there are lot of handson sessions which enables me to not only understand the theory but how it works in corporate environment. The lab sessions covered all trending tools – GIT, GitHub, Jenkins, Docker, Puppet & Nagios.
