Week 1: Introduction (mandatory)

  • Preparatory reading: DevOps principles and demo
  • Course introduction Martin Monperrus (Teaching philosophy, flipped classroom, Expectations, Team, Agenda, Grading, Communication, Infrastructure, Master's theses and Research)
  • Testimonial from last year's student
  • Goals: watch the repo, register one first task as a pull request on this repo.

Week 8: Cultural and legal aspects of DevOps

Week 9: Other topics


To pass the course, the student has to complete and pass between 3 and 5 tasks:

  • The tasks are in category: "presentation", "essay", "demo", "executable tutorial", "contribution to open-source", "feedback" (presentation and demos are mandatory, at most one in the same category, it is not necessary to cover everything).
  • The grading criteria page is the unique reference which explains how to pass each task category.
  • The student proposes a category and a topic, which is discussed and accepted by the TA. The proposal is made as a structured pull-request on this repository. The 3-5 graded contributions must have little overlap.
  • The same student cannot choose the same topic for two different tasks. The 3-5 tasks should cover different aspects of DevOps.
  • Deadlines:
    • Deadline for presentations and demos: the day and time they are given in person
    • Deadline 1 for essay / tutorial / open-source: April 11, 17h Stockholm time
    • Deadline 2 for essay / tutorial / open-source: April 24, 17h Stockholm time
    • Deadline 3 for essay / tutorial / open-source: May 8, 17h Stockholm time
    • Deadline for feedback on essays or katacodas: 48 hours after delivery for a given deadline
    • Deadline for repeated tasks (all): May 22, 17h Stockholm time.
    • The deadlines are strict and cannot be extended. Not meeting a deadline means failing the task / the repetition.
  • Final grading scheme
    • A: 5 completed tasks
    • C: 4 completed tasks
    • E: 3 completed tasks (excluding feedback)
  • Group work is encouraged (max 2 persons) but you cannot be with the same person for more than 2 projects. You can work alone for one or at most two projects.
  • A failed task requires to pass it again at the end of the course (repeat), based on the feedback from the failure. A task can only be repeated once.
  • If the whole course is failed, no grades are kept if the student registers again to the course the year after.
  • After a proposal has been merged, the topic of that proposal cannot be changed.
