Describe how the DevOps model benefits development and operations teams
The DevOps on AWS course series teaches you how to use the combination of DevOps philosophies, practices and tools to develop, deploy, and maintain applications in the AWS Cloud. Benefits of adopting DevOps include:
- Rapid delivery
- Improved collaboration.
DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.
DevOps process can be visualized as an infinite loop, comprising these steps: code, build, test, release, deploy, operate, monitor. Throughout each phase, teams collaborate and communicate to maintain alignment, velocity, and quality. The first course in the DevOps on AWS series focuses on code, build and test parts of the workflow. We will discuss topics such as source control, best practices for Continuous Integration, and how to use the right tools to measure code quality, by identifying workflow steps that could be automated. You will explore AWS Services that will help your application delivery, like AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodePipeline.
Target audience for this course
- DevOps engineers
- DevOps architects
- Operations engineers
- System administrators
- Site Reliability Engineers
- Cloud Engineers
Note: This series is made up of three courses based on the steps of a DevOps process. The first three steps “Code, Build, Test” are covered in the first course. The next two steps, “Release and Deploy” will be covered in the second course. And then finally, our third course of the series will cover the final steps “Operate and Monitor”. We recommend taking all three DevOps on AWS courses in the prescribed order for a logical and thorough learning experience.
