We’re over the halfway mark of the DevOps Bootcamp and I’m liking this DevOps thing so far!

Overview

In week four, the focus was to understand the concept of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) using Terraform and to deploy an application to Azure. The main goals to achieve by the end of the week were:

  • to be able to explain what Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is;
  • to create a Github Actions automatic workflow to build and manage the project infrastructure using Terraform;
  • to set up a Github Actions CI/CD workflow to deploy an application to…

Github and AWS

It’s week three! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through the DevOps Bootcamp! 🤯

Overview

In week three, we continued to practise building our own CI/CD pipeline but this time using Github Actions instead of Jenkins. The main goals of the week:

  • to build a CI/CD pipeline using Github Actions;
  • to deploy a containerised Node.js/Express application on AWS EC2 using our own CI/CD pipeline;

We kicked off week two by diving straight into our new weekly team project and the goals were:

  • to use AWS S3 Buckets to host a static website app;
  • to build our first CI/CD pipeline using Jenkins;
  • to deploy a static website with AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway;
  • to be a better DevOps engineer than the day before;
  • to have fun!

By the end of the week, we should have a simple serverless website that’s deployed on AWS.

Last week, we wrapped up the final week of the Makers software development apprenticeship bootcamp and presented our final group project to our peers and employers. The last 12 weeks have been intense but an incredibly rewarding experience learning to code with an amazing cohort who I now call friends. We’ve grown with newfound confidence, presenting like a boss and with new technical skills under our belt.

Although it’s not all over yet! …

At the end of 2019, I set myself a crazy goal to learn to code in the hopes of changing careers into software development and after a year, I can’t believe I did it!

I couldn’t leave my full-time job to do a computer science degree or a bootcamp so instead, I learnt as much as I could through online resources, attended free programming workshops, tech events, and took part in the #100DaysOfCode challenge twice.

Not long after sharing on Twitter my first blog post about my #100DaysOfCode experience, I was furloughed until further notice from my admin job at…
