Introduction to DevOps
  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • In the free course Introduction to DevOps you will be introduced to concepts and practices behind DevOps which can lead to improved customer satisfaction, improved productivity and efficiency, and the increased ability to build the right product by fast experimentation (DevOps is a clipped compound of the words 'development' and 'operations').

    The course begins by explaining what DevOps is and its benefits as a collaboration and communication methodology for both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals. You will learn about different aspects of DevOps such as how it can be used to establish a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably. Testing occurs in almost every cycle of software development and is a useful way of knowing what works and your end user needs. You will learn about continuous integration and MTTR.

    The course then delves into continuous deployment and release management. You will gain knowledge about the three stages of deployment, how you can set up your own private agent, and the functionality of artifacts in DevOps. You will then learn about the process of configuration management, application performance monitoring, and availability monitoring.

    Finally, the course provides you with information on advanced processes of DevOps. You will learn about different advanced processes such as rollback and roll-forward, automated environment de-provisioning, and user telemetry.

    This course will be of great interest to software developers and other IT professionals who would like to learn more about DevOps and how it can bring significant benefits such as shorter time-to-market, better product quality, and more reliable releases.
