A free four-day training course for students
Are you a student or a recent graduate looking to start a career in software? Do you feel like you still have a few things to learn before you’re ready for the world of professional software development?
How would you a like a free, intense, four-day, hands-on course in Git, Jenkins, Test-Driven Development and Docker? You would!
The Academy is an intense 4-day course that will take you through all the basics of Continuous Delivery.
You will actually get a diploma for attending these four days.
To get a quick overview of the Academy, check out this video from the 2017 Continuous Delivery Academy in Copenhagen
You can see the program and photos from the 4 Continuous Delivery Academies that took place last year.
The Continuous Delivery Academy usually runs in Denmark, Norway and Sweden during the break in June, August or December.
In previous years we have visited:
Sure - send us a mail and we can set up a chat!
Here’s the thing - demand for Continuous Delivery and DevOps skills is far outstripping what is available the in the job market. In a way, we at Praqma are feeling this most acutely. We have fantastic demand for our consulting and training offerings, business has more than doubled over the last year. Meanwhile back at the ranch we are actively recruiting for open positions in all our locations.
When scheming solutions for this challenge, our first thought was obvious - we train our clients, why not train our recruits!
And it makes sense. We take training very seriously at Praqma, and understand that only by continuous learning can we deliver the best value to our clients. We invest a lot of time in experimenting with new technology, finding great development workflows, and sharing what we learn. Why not train our recruits?
But then a second thought came - instead of only training our recruits, why not train all recruits? Why not make this available to everyone looking for work, so that not only Praqma employees get these skills but all people entering the industry?
What testing steps should you include in your Continuous Delivery pipeline? Don’t just string together existing manual processes - use simple, collaborative tools to design something better!

Jenkins is one of the best adverts for open source and at Praqma we have been using it since the very beginning. We enjoy giving something back to the community by hosting Day of Jenkins, and this year’s event was packed with exciting developments. Read on!

Continuous Delivery and DevOps are here to stay and not because they’re being practiced by trendsetting unicorn companies. The fact is science tells us that these approaches work and this year’s conference gave us lots of examples.

DevOpsDays Copenhagen 2018 was a great success. Inspiring talks and a pleasant community. I had the pleasure of being the host of this event. I decided to kick off the event with a song about DevOps. See the video and lyrics here.

A developer that pushes their changes and goes on a celebratory walk to the water cooler is done. But, they’re not done done, their changes have yet to be thoroughly tested, added to future release notes, properly peer reviewed and more. These are pains we want to rid the software industry of, and here’s how we do it.

We strive to continuously improve, so the 8th gathering in our Continuous Delivery Alliance will feature all the good things from the 7th meeting in a slightly evolved format.
CoDe Alliance goes code camp
Continuously improving our format
We had our 7th gathering in the CoDe Alliance a few months ago and have worked to distill and evolve many of the good ideas that came out of our sessions. Our aim is to turn our interesting discussions into tangible projects and running code.

What’s next for the CoDe Alliance?
Immutable infrastructure as code reduces inconsistency and makes deployments faster and easier. We can provision immutable infrastructure with Packer & Terraform. Let’s use them to provision Jenkins Windows build slaves.
