DevOps: Digital Transformation for the Cloud and Beyond

Course Description

DevOps requires a cultural change that rethinks how traditional organizations are structured. It relies on adaptive, Agile management processes, allowing organizations to be lean and efficient. DevOps is rooted in modern, programming best-practices. It is part test-driven development, part source control, and part build automation.
