Training outline

This training focusses on the role of System Engineers for the WSO2 product deployments, on-premise or cloud-based, and the day-to-day management of the WSO2 infrastructure. The focus is not the development of artefacts like API’s or Services, but rather on the deployment, configuration and operational support of the WSO2 product itself. Touching on topics like Ansible, Monitoring with Jolokia, Grafana, Telegraf and Prometheus. This course, like all Yenlo courses, has more hands-on labs than time permits, allowing students to cherry pick the labs that they are interested most.

If you need to deliver support and trouble shoot on a daily basis, then this training is meant for you.

During registration you can specify which WSO2 product are in scope for you: WSO2 API, WSO2 EI and/or WSO2 IAM.

Frequently asked questions

Where does the training take place?

The training can take place at Yenlo’s headquarters in Schiphol-Rijk (Amsterdam) or on site at a client when there is a large enough group of people. In COVID times we offer training online. 

How long is the training?

The regular training (classroom) ranges from one day to multiple days, depending on the product and type of training (e.g., fundamentals / advanced). Online trainings are always multiday.

Can I have customized training?

Custom training is possible, however this will be priced differently since we need to change the standard training material. Please contact us if you have questions about custom training.

What is the difference between online training and classroom training?

Classroom training is a whole day or multiple days with the trainer in a physical location. The trainer helps you directly when you have questions and of course explains the theory.
The online training is conducted completely online and is a slimmed down version of the regular training to make it manageable for people to do it on their own. 

In an online training setting, you will have a morning session where we explain and discuss theory. The afternoon is spent on your own, in the virtual environment, with help from the trainer via Teams or other communication tools.

What kind of computer do I need for the training?

The computer (e.g., a PC) should be able to run NoMachine and be able to make a connection to our training environment. Several ports and internet access need to be open / available since everything is done in the cloud. The PC should ideally be running Windows. 

Note: In case of an internet connection not being available, we could revert to a local installation. Meaning that you install the environment on your local pc and work from there. To be able to install the ‘no machine software’, as well as the port openings, you need to have administrative rights.

What kind of operating system will we be running in the training environment?

We will be running a CentOS 7 Linux environment running on an Amazon with two cores and eight gigabytes of memory. This should be enough for the training in general.

Do I need Linux knowledge and capabilities to work with the environment?

Linux and knowledge of Linux is handy. However, within the training, the number of specific Linux commands that we are going to use, will be limited to some very simple commands that are also familiar for Windows users. Like for instance, moving within a directory structure with CD, and starting the scripts from WSO2 using the command line tool. 

I am not a developer, would I be able to follow the training for developers? (Either fundamentals or advanced)

You do not necessarily need to be a developer to attend the training and to be able to finish the training. The training often focuses more on configuration than on typical coding. In other words, most of the stuff that you are doing, will be done by clicking and typing. 

I am not familiar with the concept of message mediation, message transformation or concepts like the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). Does this mean I would not be able to complete training?

No, knowledge of an enterprise service bus is something that is handy. But it is not a prerequisite. If you are not familiar with the concepts that are typically associated with connecting systems, you can always have a discussion with our training department / our trainer, to see if you can attend the training.

In some cases, we can give you some reading material. This is to improve your knowledge before the training. 

Having said that, we have had project managers, with almost no development experience or knowledge of the concepts of the enterprise service bus, and they were able to complete the training.

Is the training difficult?

Whenever you are learning something new, it is going to be a challenge for your mind. With that, we mean that you are going to learn new concepts, new interfaces, new tools. This will make the training require energy, but the training will be manageable. 

However, it is very common to be overloaded with information at the end of the day, that is why the training instances are often just shut down at night because of the need to rest for your mind, to be able to absorb the training material in a better way.

Will I be an expert after the training?

One of the most important things that we stress is that Rome was not built in one day. The training course that you will embark on will be the start of a journey as a developer or configurator of WSO2 products. Do not expect every aspect, every detail to be crystal clear from the first moment. It is very common to only have the pieces of the puzzle fall into place after some time, or some weeks. So, no. You will not be an instant expert.

How can I best prepare for a training like this?

The best way to prepare is to get a good night’s rest. Make sure that you read the prerequisites of the training material. And furthermore, have an open mind as to the things that you are about to learn.

Can I do the labs afterwards, again, or are they tied to the environment?

Most of the labs can be done on your own computer. During the training you will have the training material online (confluence environment), after the training the materials and training environment will not be available anymore. 

Can I make a copy of the training labs and give them to my colleagues?

No, it is not allowed. The training material is the intellectual property of Yenlo and may not be photocopied or duplicated in any form or shape.

What happens if I have questions during the training?

During the training you can always ask the trainer, directly in a classroom setting or using digital communication channels like Teams, WhatsApp, email when you have a question when doing the labs / homework. 

Can I get extra training materials?

For the API Manager and the Enterprise Integrator, there are advanced courses that will deepen your knowledge with regard to the two products. For Identity Server, an advanced course is under construction.

What are the languages in which the training is available?

The training material, as well as the training, is given in English. However, the training can be given in Dutch or German as well. All materials will be in English, the explanation will be in either English, German or Dutch when there is a homogenous group, i.e. all speakers are either German or Dutch, and they agree to the change of language.

When there is a mixed group of students, we will revert to the common spoken language, English.
