Fundamentals of DevOps course provides new ways of thinking about how development and operations can work better together to deliver value to customers more quickly. It is expected that course participants will already have a solid background in IT, as well as strong knowledge of Agile, Lean, Systems Thinking, Kanban, Continuous Delivery and related techniques and practices (for more assistance with Agile Training, please see our Agile Training Courses page). This DevOps Training course builds on this knowledge and makes connections to the concept of DevOps.

This course is highly interactive, with almost half of the course time dedicated to exercises and discussions. While this course addresses the considerations for a DevOps implementation, this course does not focus on any particular tools and technologies needed to implement DevOps. While the key principles, components and considerations of DevOps are explored, this course does not align to any formal body of knowledge for DevOps because one does not exist.

  • Explain the benefits that DevOps provides
  • Connect DevOps to the practices of Lean, Agile, and Systems Thinking
