ICAgile Foundations of DevOps – Guaranteed to Run
In solving one problem, agile has created a new bottleneck at the interface between development and operations teams, each having very different goals. DevOps has evolved as a way to bring these two teams together and accelerate the delivery of value to the users and customers. This course provides an overview of DevOps, including its history, the cultural changes required to effectively apply DevOps, and the practices that support the goals of DevOps. We explore continuous integration (CI), continuous delivery (CD), and the deployment pipeline that lies at the heart of DevOps.
