The DevOps Agile skills association renewed the certification roadmap, and the 3rd tier (Leadership level) certifications are available now. I have passed the Product Owner certification one of the first, and want to share a brief experience about this prestigious certification.
The Product Owner role is a leading role to ensure the Product vision, roadmap and backlog, and finally the product value to a customer.
The DASA association actively drives training and certification activities in this area.
The PO certification exam includes 40 questions (in fact, not very complicated, especially if a candidate is good with Scrum and Agile). Each question is followed by 4 answer options, one of those is correct. 26 correct answers (65%) lead to success.
I passed the exam at the first attempt. It seems to me that the certification marks that junior PO is ready for his/her journey.
As any other certification it helps to structure candidate’s skills and practical experience.
3 practical assignments are added to the course “ITIL and DevOps”.
Start-up teams, which deliver and support their products can learn how to implement the ITIL based IT service lifecycle by a single DevOps team.
Now each student can make his/her own exercises according to his/her IT organization specific features and discuss the case with the trainer at the course forum.
Join the training with a lifelong access for $9.99 only.
Enjoy simply story what DevOps is with a lot of funny pictures.
Show it your manager to persuade him/er adapt DevOps principles.
