  • Anyone interested in adopting DevOps and related CI/CD practices
  • Teams adopting DevOps and configuring CI/CD within your own environment 

Learning Objectives 

  • Apply critical DevOps best practices, including the basics of continuous integration, continuous delivery, CALMS, and automation
  • Use DevOps tools to configure effective build and deployment pipelines
  • Assess existing DevOps maturity using CALMS as a conceptual framework
  • Use Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to automate infrastructure provisioning  


  • Basic understanding of software development and related software development life cycle (SDLC) practices
