Intro to DevOps: New certificate class at edX

Enroll here: Introduction to DevOps.

You may have heard that the cool kids are adopting a new software methodology, named “DevOps”:

DevOps is the union of people, process and products to enable the continuous delivery of value to end users. It aims to create a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably, so you can innovate like a startup and scale for the enterprise. By taking this introductory DevOps course, you’ll be able to define DevOps, understand why you need DevOps, and learn how you can get started with DevOps. You’ll learn the key ideas and techniques to bring development and operations together to produce higher-quality software and deliver it more quickly.

This is a quick four-week class that requires two-to-three hours of effort per week. For demos and labs, the class uses Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and the Azure platform to illustrate the key concepts and practices of DevOps. Look over the labs on GitHub: EdX Intro to DevOps on GitHub.

Early reviews are good, e.g. , “A fantastic course for DevOps beginners! It is very well designed and organized. The course materials are informative and very engaging. Highly recommended.”
