DevOps is a growing field that encompasses the automation, standardization, and formalization of development and deployment.
In today’s development teams and software companies, there’s a disconnect between development and operations. Many times, software developers will write the code and let operations figure out to make it work in production. As you can imagine, this traditional way of doing things doesn’t always work and often costs companies and developers time, money, and focus.
Our new learning path, DevOps Fundamentals, is designed to serve as an introduction to DevOps, a philosophy of the efficient development, deployment, and operation of the highest quality software possible.
While the exact specifics of a particular DevOps mission will differ between companies, the ultimate goal is to eliminate the headaches associated with the disconnect between developers and operations personnel.
This learning path will guide you through the most critical DevOps topics in a non-vendor-specific way and help you to determine how best to apply these practices for your own project or within your own organization.
Here’s a quick look at some of the most important topics you’ll learn about when you begin this learning path:
- A basic introduction to DevOps for newcomers.
- An introduction to continuous integration.

- How to deploy software with AWS Elastic Beanstalk.
- How to build your first OpsWorks stack.
- An overview of software operations.
- How to build a log aggregation system in AWS.
Each and every one of these courses and hands-on labs is designed to take you from novice to proficient as efficiently as possible. You’ll gain a solid understanding of the key concepts and challenges facing the DevOps field, as well as practical hands-on knowledge in a live AWS environment.
