DevOps Fundamentals

August 16-18, 2022

Are you ready to streamline how you deliver value to your customers? In solving one problem, agile has created a new bottleneck at the interface between development and operations teams (and others such as security teams), each having very different goals. DevOps has evolved as a way to bring these teams together and accelerate the delivery of value to the users and customers.

This course provides a solid foundation in DevOps for both business and technical personnel. Taking a holistic view, it looks at what is needed from the perspectives of the people and culture, the processes followed, and the technology used.

The experiences of organisations successfully applying DevOps is used to drive an evidence-based approach to change. Particular emphasis is placed on using value stream mapping to understand the big picture and identify any improvements to make.

By the end of this course you will be able to understand:
• The background and mind-set of DevOps
• The key development practices of configuration management and test automation that support DevOps
• The challenges and support for managing infrastructure and databases.
• The essentials of continuous integration (CI)
• The principles and practices of continuous delivery (CD)
• The deployment pipeline and its purpose

This is an interactive course using group discussions and paper-based planning exercises to understand the concepts and how they can be applied to the participants’ individual circumstances and to a provided exercise scenario.
