Course of the training

  • Get out of your own office and everyday working life – this allows you to concentrate fully on the training content. That's why we would like to invite you to join us. 
  • We start at 09:30 with a tea or espresso and a small snack.
  • At 12:00 we eat together in our canteen, then we continue.
  • The training days are exhausting, so we don't do 8 hours of frontal teaching. We finish at 4 pm.
  • There are always two trainers at your side: this means that nobody is left behind, every exercise can be carried out and questions in between do not hold you up.
  • After the training: We are also available to you as a point of contact after the training.
We received intensive, three-day training on Kubernetes from the DevOps team at makandra. makandra responded individually to our challenges and the level of knowledge of our team. I can absolutely recommend the training courses.

Training duration tailored to you

We determine a time frame together: two, three or four days? In one go or with breaks for practicing? We will adapt to you and help you find the best mode.

We are happy to invite you to our premises. If you wish, we can come to you and do the training in-house. We will find the best time together and agree the training days.

Flexible training content

We determine the content together: How strong are you in the area of DevOps, where is something missing and what do you want to focus on? Don't know exactly? No problem, we'll find out together.
