About the course

The process to release software to users is often painful, risky and time consuming. Continuous Delivery can help large organisations to become lean, agile and innovative by having reliable and low risks releases, making it possible to adapt continuous updates in line with user feedback, market shifts and changes to business strategies.

As a result, the entire delivery process is accelerated while improving the quality. Teams from test, support, development and operations function and work together as one delivery team.

This course aims to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of DevOps Engineering and Automation concepts, best practices and tools and Agile Continuous Delivery methods.

Participants will learn both the theoretical concepts and practical modules in lectures and hands-on workshops.
