Course Overview:

The Working with Spinnaker at Salesforce training course is designed to introduce students to the Spinnaker continuous delivery platform. The class will begin with covering the key foundations of Spinnaker’s model for enabling typical application deployment and management scenarios, specifically when it comes to enabling easy and efficient ways of doing so in cloud infrastructure. It will then dive further into CI/CD pipelines, and how Spinnaker thinks of and makes use of pipelines to enable its application deployment model and flow. Along the way, students will get help looking closely at each of its key features for standard and, at times, not-so-standard use-cases along with walkthroughs and examples on how to use Spinnaker in Falcon.

Target Audience:

END USERS of Spinnaker, Service Owners & DevOps teams deploying micro-services to cloud k8s substrates (EKS if the AWS class version, GKE if the GCP class version, etc.).
