This comprehensive Generative AI (GenAI) course is for DevOps and ITOps professionals who want to master the deployment, management, and scaling of Generative AI and Large Language Model (LLM) applications. The course covers various topics, from the foundations of LLMs to advanced deployment strategies and best practices. Participants will gain hands-on experience with popular tools and frameworks, including Docker, Kubernetes, and cloud platforms in an LLM environment.

Skills Gained

  • Understand the infrastructure requirements and challenges associated with LLM deployment
  • Deploy and manage LLM-powered applications using containerization and orchestration technologies
  • Implement strategies for scaling LLM applications to handle increasing workloads
  • Monitor and troubleshoot LLM application performance in production environments
  • Ensure the security, compliance, and reliability of LLM deployments
  • Optimize resource utilization and cost-efficiency for LLM applications

Prerequisites

  • Practical Python programming and scripting for automation tasks (6+ months)
  • API call access and event stream handling
  • Exception handling, debugging, testing, and logging
  • Experience with containerization technologies (e.g., Docker) and orchestration platforms (e.g., Kubernetes)
  • Familiarity with CI/CD pipelines and tools, such as Jenkins, GitLab, or GitHub Actions
  • Knowledge of cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure) and their services
  • Experience with monitoring and logging tools, such as Prometheus, Grafana, and ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) is recommended but not required
  • Machine Learning concepts recommended - classification, regression, clustering
