An ICAgile-Accredited DevOps Course

ABOUT THIS COURSE

The DevOps Way is a practitioner’s guide to understanding DevOps and how it helps you, and the enterprises you are part of, succeed at scale.

Drawing upon experiences and insights from practitioners and thought leaders in the global DevOps community, we have created a course which will give you broad knowledge across the full DevOps landscape.

In the DevOps Way, you’ll discover the origins of DevOps, gain an understanding of DevOps from the viewpoint of some of its most influential thought leaders and learn about the relationship DevOps has with Continuous Delivery and Agile practices.

We’ll also explore the various technologies which enable DevOps at scale and how DevOps plays a vital role in the enterprise.

On completing this course you will have gained comprehensive knowledge of the beliefs and behaviours that underpin DevOps, enabling you to provide a greater and more rewarding contribution towards the mission of your enterprise.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The DevOps Way is relevant to anyone who has an interest in the delivery of customer value. It’s equally relevant to people who consider themselves technical or non-technical.

For new joiners or people looking to upskill, the course will give you an in-depth overview of DevOps and practitioner insights into ways of working which are associated with High performing organisations.

For existing members of the enterprise involved in delivering value, you will gain valuable insights and accounts from some of DevOps’s more recognised thought leaders. It will challenge your perspective on DevOps and provide several different viewpoints which will help you to have a more enjoyable career and realise your full potential.

Enterprise leadership will also discover a wealth of insights from practitioners in new ways of working which will increase the impact of their transformational activities.
