Alumni Testimonial

Coming from a non-DevOps;background, it was earlier difficult for me to carry out various DevOps projects at my company. So, I took Simplilearn PGP in DevOps in association with Caltech CTME. After the course, my company gave me many DevOps projects such as the opportunity to configure and maintain the Nexus Repository which is used to store all our Artifacts for the Development team. Simplilearn goes by its name &;learn simply&;.
