Overview

Learn how DevOps has brought together years of the most effective and proven practices from development and operations (Agile, Lean, and more) – and aligned them around common characteristics: value, cross-functional collaboration, agility, and strong teams.  DevOps is really the marrying of process, infrastructure, and product. Take this class to learn how to bring these groups together to optimize, re-think, and re-engineer your processes.

We’ll take a look at establishing a common definition of DevOps and understand why DevOps is so important.  Through case studies, we’ll see that high performing organizations are using DevOps as a competitive advantage.  Don’t be left behind!  In addition, this class will teach the keys to fostering a culture for successful DevOps implementations, and give you a roadmap to get started. Finally, this class will help you understand the tools necessary to automate your processes for maximum efficiency.  We’ll put all the pieces of the puzzle together for you.
