Introduction

This course provides the knowledge and skills to design and implement DevOps processes and practices. Students will learn how to plan for DevOps, use source control, scale Git for an enterprise, consolidate artifacts, design a dependency management strategy, manage secrets, implement continuous integration, implement a container build strategy, design a release strategy, set up a release management workflow, implement a deployment pattern, and optimize feedback mechanisms.

Who should attend

Students in this course are interested in implementing DevOps processes or in passing the Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions certification exam.

Prerequisites & Audience

Fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles. It would be helpful to have experience in an organization that delivers software.

To become a Microsoft Certified: Azure DevOps Engineer Expert, you must either earn the Azure Administrator Associate or Azure Developer Associate certification.

Great pre-requisite courses for those certifications are Microsoft Azure Administrator (AZ-104T00) or Developing solutions for Microsoft Azure (AZ-204T00)
