Fundamentals of DevOps 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 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.

This course builds on that knowledge and makes connections to the concept of DevOps. The key principles, components and considerations of DevOps are explored. 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, nor does it align to any formal body of knowledge for DevOps while one does not exist.

  • Define DevOps
  • Explain the benefits that DevOps provides
  • Connect DevOps to the practices of Lean, Agile, and Systems Thinking
  • Identify and differentiate between the components of the DevOps cycle 
  • List the aspects to consider when implementing DevOps
  • The Need for DevOps
