Course Abstract

The DevOps from within course explores the origins of the DevOps movement, the advantages, building blocks and leading edge practices of DevOps. The participants in this course will dive into the building blocks that are required to start the journey to DevOps. This course is 1 day and will concentrate on showing how the participants can go back to their organization and start planting the seeds of DevOps. The study of DevOps has found that the vast majority of successful DevOps movements in organizations have started from within, generally a handful of individuals who have decided that there has to be a better way to work. DevOps owes the majority of its basis to the Lean Manufacturing and TQM philosophies, we will explore the key concepts that have been adapted from Lean Manufacturing and TQM. One important component of DevOps that will be emphasized to the participants is that there is no one playbook for implementing DevOps, instead the organizations that have moved to DevOps have developed a number of new and innovative practices.


This course is designed for anyone who is looking to find a way to improve the way their organizations works through the use of DevOps practices. The participants in this course will work with others in real workshops where they will gain insight into real DevOps practices that are fundamental to the adoption of DevOps. The participants in this class do not need to possess the technical skills needed to use the tools used in DevOps, but they do need to understand how these tools are used together to tie together the building blocks of DevOps.
