Learn how to adopt and use the DevOps methodology in your organisation - in just 2 days. On this accelerated Introduction to DevOps course, you’ll study the fundamental capabilities of the methodology to provide continuous software delivery, testing, development and monitoring.

You’ll also learn how to:

  • Adopt DevOps in your organisation
  • Use continuous testing, development and monitoring
  • Identify bottlenecks in a delivery pipeline
  • Use cloud to accelerate DevOps
  • Assemble a DevOps team and establish executive roles

Make DevOps work in your organisation as you expand agile practices, leverage test automation, build a delivery pipeline and experiment rapidly. On this accelerated course, you’ll be immersed in this agile methodology as you learn more with Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology.

This accelerated 2-day course is ideal for members of QA and development teams.
