In the dark ages of technology, which some of us find ourselves still living in, there’s a disconnect between development and operations. Developers throw code over the proverbial wall, and it’s up to operations to get the code into production and keep it running.
This disconnect ends up wasting time for everyone and doesn’t produce the best quality software possible. This learning path was designed to serve as an introduction to DevOps, a philosophy of the efficient development, deployment, and operation of the highest quality software possible.
Being a philosophy and not some ridged manifesto allows DevOps to be implemented in different ways by different companies, but always toward the same end goal. And that makes it more valuable.
This learning path will take you through the concepts around DevOps in a non-vendor-specific way and help you to determine how best to apply these practices for your company.
You'll gain an understanding of exactly what DevOps is, with this collection of courses and labs.
If you have your own experiences that are related to development or operations, feel free to share them on the community forums.
