Training center for
DevOps and Developers

Intensives, video courses and corporate training from practitioners
Slurm project is descended from an in-house training at Southbridge, a company that provides administration for high load systems. We developed a course on Kubernetes to train our own employees, then added to that basic course an advanced version. Later on DevOps, Docker, Ceph, SRE courses appeared.

We only teach what we are experts in. We have been successfully training IT engineers in Russia and the CIS countries for 4 years.

Slurm is Descended from an In-House Training at Southbridge
Southbridge is a company that provides administration for high load systems. We developed courses to train our own employees, then shared with community.
Limited Tech-Stack
We use Kubernetes, but not Docker Swarm or Mesos. Likewise, we can display CI processes with Gitlab, but we do not use Jenkins and BitBucket.
Practice: From Zero to Hero
Our every course is result- and practice-oriented. We are very picky about what the market offers and teach solely what we personally use in work.
Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
