What is the difference between an Online Bootcamp Program, a Short Course and a Postgraduate Program?

An Online Bootcamp Program is an intensive and accelerated learning program made up of a collection of self-paced eLearning components and live online classes that students are required to attend.
The Online Bootcamp program curriculum contain a combination of specifically chosen courses and career-critical skills that are aligned to a job role.

A Post Graduate Program is quite similar to an Online Bootcamp Program but do not involve self-paced online learning. The Post Graduate Program course structures are cohort based. This means students are required to complete training in their specific chosen schedule enabling students to focus and practice skills they have learned in class from start to finish.

A Short Course on the other hand are shorter courses that is designed to target developing a specific skill set or topic. They generally are much quicker to complete than Bootcamp Programs.


What is DevOps?

DevOps, short for Development and Operations, is a collaborative approach to software development and deployment. It emphasises close cooperation between software developers and IT operations teams throughout the entire development process. In simple terms, DevOps is like a bridge that connects the people who create software (developers) with the people who manage and maintain it (operations).

Traditionally, software development and operations were treated as separate entities, which sometimes led to communication gaps, delays and conflicts. DevOps aims to break down these barriers by promoting continuous collaboration, automation, and shared responsibilities. It involves using various tools and practices to streamline processes, such as version control, continuous integration and continuous deployment. The goal is to achieve faster, more frequent and reliable software releases while maintaining high quality and stability.


Is DevOps a profitable career?

DevOps is a highly sought-after and financially rewarding career path in Australia. The demand for DevOps professionals is on the rise as more companies embrace agile software development practices and seek to improve their software delivery processes. With the increasing adoption of cloud technologies and automation, the need for skilled DevOps practitioners has become crucial.

According to industry reports, the average salary for DevOps engineers in Australia ranges from AUD 100,000 to AUD 150,000 per year, depending on experience and expertise. However, experienced and highly skilled DevOps professionals can earn even higher salaries. Additionally, the demand for DevOps expertise is expected to continue growing, presenting ample opportunities for career advancement and increased earnings.

5 star

Upskilled have been incredibly supportive and understanding throughout the duration of my course. Due to some personal tragedies and circumstances it took me longer to complete my Diploma. Student Support arranged extensions on the deadline and I was able to complete my Diploma. My tutor, Gideon was supportive and assisted with answering questions when I had them and encouraged me all the way.


5 star

As a mature aged student I was not sure that studying via the internet would be for me. Once started I found the course to be very informative and easy to follow. The feedback I received from my instructor was timely and supportive. I would recommend Upskilled. Thanks all.
