This DevOps United course is relevant for the testers who are in roles where DevOps forms a part of their responsibilities or for the testers who want to understand what DevOps means and how to implement some of the practices in their day to day work. DevOps have become a key to continuous delivery which involves continuous integration, deployment and testing.
DevOps requires us to think beyond development and testing. It requires us to involve people who support the development such as people who create the deployment environment, deploy and monitor it and customer support amongst all possible roles. This requires us to change the way we do testing and the types of testing we do. It also requires us to change the way we collaborate with people.
The fact that Agile has become very popular means we need to think of DevOps in Agile too. The course not only explores these but also looks the tools that enable DevOps including activities that require creation of test environment quickly and the technologies that enable it such as the cloud and containers (e.g. Dockers) and also automated build, release and deployment and also Automation tools.
