This DevOps Foundation® (DOFD) Certification training introduces DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration, and automation to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT (Information Technology) operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy, and operate software and services faster. Likewise, improving the ability of IT to produce software faster improves the ability of the business to deliver value to customers faster.
The course includes an extensive collection of basic DevOps terms and concepts and highlights all aspects of DevOps (people, processes, and technology). In addition, it addresses the organisational change aspects of adopting a DevOps culture. Finally, the training reinforces learning through practical hands-on assignments.
