Program Objective
This course enables participants to better understand “DevOps”, a contraction of ‘Development’ and ‘Operations’. DevOps is a set of best practices that emphasize the collaboration and communication of IT-professionals (developers, operators, and support staff) in the lifecycle of applications and services, leading to:
• Continuous Integration: merging all developed working copies to a shared mainline several times a day
• Continuous Deployment: release continuously or as often as possible
• Continuous Feedback: seek feedback from stakeholders during all lifecycle stages

Also, the DevOps practices covered in this certification are established around the knowledge associated with DevOps Three Ways:
• The First Way is to enable the work to move fast from left to right, from Development to Operations to the customer.
• The Second Way is to enable feedback to go fast from right to left, from all stakeholders back into the value stream.
• The Third Way is to enable learning by creating a high-trust culture of experimentation and risk-taking.
• Moreover, the crucial subjects of security in all stages, and maintaining compliance during change are covered.
