DASA Development Workshop – Designing the Expert Level Certification Program

Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA) is organizing a Development Workshop on May 25th with the objective to design its Expert Level certification program. In spirit of DASA’s open, collaborative and community driven approach, we are inviting DevOps and Agile professionals to join us for this 1-day workshop at the Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands.

During one exciting and intense day, we are going to explore the position of the Expert Level certification programs within the DASA DevOps Competence Model and other DASA programs. Based on this exploration, we will come up with a design for the new programs, which includes key outcomes, target audience, and examination strategy for the next level DASA DevOps certification programs.

This is your opportunity to give back to the community, and help to design DASA’s future. If you are an experienced DevOps / Agile professional (trainer, consultant, practitioner) we welcome your contribution.

There are no fees associated with this workshop. In order to apply for participation the following criteria apply.

  1. You are associated or work with a DASA member - which means you are a Forerunner member, DASA Ambassador, DASA Training Partner, DASA Exam Services Partner, or DASA Courseware Partner.
