What is DevOps?
Brainstorm and explore what principles, practices, and cultural elements make up a DevOps model for software design and development.
Collaborative practices to establish culture and shared understanding
Learn and experience practices that facilitate great conversation and alignment across stakeholder groups such as priority sliders, pair programming, mob programming, conducting retrospectives, visualizing work, assessing team sentiment, and performing agile estimation.
Understanding the Why and Who of software delivery
Use the impact mapping discovery practice to connect deliverables to measurable impact. Learn how to use human-centered design, design thinking, and Lean UX to develop empathy with users and stakeholders.
Domain-driven design and storytelling
Learn and practice the powerful Event Storming tool to visualize and map event-driven systems to produce emergent architectures for iterative and incremental delivery.
Prioritization and pivoting
Experience the collection of ideas, aligning them to target outcomes, and using economic prioritization practices and value slicing to build product backlogs that can deliver incremental value.
Cover agile delivery practices, including Kanban, Scrum, sprint planning, daily standup, showcase, retrospective, and backlog refinement.
Design of experiments
Set up, execute, and measure the results of experiments by utilizing platform’s advanced deployment features, including A/B Testing, Blue/Green Deployments, Feature Toggles, Dark Launches, and Canary Deployments.
Value stream and process mapping
Delve into the practices of value stream mapping and metric-based process mapping to establish non-functional improvements that you can make to product delivery and execution of value streams.
Continuous integration, deployment, and delivery
Explore the foundational practices of continuous integration, continuous deployment, and continuous delivery.
Learn how to elaborate non-functional areas that are unlikely to be captured by using practices primarily focused on the functional aspects of a solution.
Develop an understanding of test-driven development and business-driven development foundational practices, often called automated testing.
Everything as code and GitOps
Explore continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines using Jenkins and Tekton and sing a GitOps approach to codify everything for repeatability. Experience how to extend pipelines to cover non-functional testing, monitoring, and observability.
