Overview

For Agile to be successful there needs to be in place a robust process of continuous development and deployment that supports rollout of high quality products which are bug and defect free.

A successful continuous delivery architect should know how to set up a CI/CD pipeline in the organization, the tools and processes and engineering practices to deploy, and the cultural shift to be adopted to foster continuous delivery. Continuous Delivery Ecosystem Foundation(CDEF)℠ workshop and the subsequent certification supported by the DevOps Institute (DOI) helps participants validate their knowledge of setting up such CI/CD practices and meet organizational objectives, satisfy the demands of the market and beat the competition.

KnowledgeHut, which is a Registered Education Partner (REP) of the DevOps Institute (DOI) brings you a comprehensive workshop that will help you aim for a first time pass of the exam and gain the skills needed to bring about effective continuous delivery by understanding the underpinning processes, metrics, APls and cultural considerations with Continuous Delivery.

The course is based primarily on the concepts outlined by DevOps influencers in books such as “Continuous Delivery,” “Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and DevOps: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations”. It empowers professionals with broad-based competencies necessary in architecting and orchestrating effective and efficient automated deployment pipelines.
