In this course, we introduce you to the DevOps Playbook Part 1.

The DevOps Playbook Part 1 course begins with Book 1, a brief introduction to DevOps and how in recent times it has become the defacto approach to developing and operating applications. We then introduce you to Books 2 through to 7, covering the topics, CALMS, Collaboration, Automation, Version Control, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Testing, where each book documents a required DevOps competency, one in which you’ll need to adopt and establish skills in to be effective in DevOps.

  • Book 1 - DevOps
  • Book 2 - CALMS
  • Book 3 - Collaboration
  • Book 4 - Automation
  • Book 5 - Version Control

The DevOps Playbook Part 1 course includes 2 demonstrations where we put into practice some of the DevOps theory presented.

- [Instructor] Welcome back. Before we finish, let's do a quick review of what we have learned during this course. 

In which, we've covered of the DevOps Adoption Playbook, books one through to seven. We gained an understanding of the important requirements to consider when adopting DevOps into your own organization. We gained an understanding of how to use CALMS, a conceptual framework to assess existing DevOps maturity. We gained an understanding of the importance of collaboration and automation for successful DevOps. We gained an understanding of the importance of version control as being a fundamental starting service. And finally, we gained an understanding of continuous integration and continuous testing for building quality software at both scale and speed. 

That concludes part one of the DevOps Adoption Playbook. 

Go ahead and close this course, and we'll see you shortly in part two where we continue with books eight through to 12, covering the topics, infrastructure is code, configuration management, continuous delivery, continuous deployment, and monitoring.
