Introduction to DevOps

Software developer implementing DevOps using laptop in the office

The software industry has always been under pressure to minimize development time while ensuring high-quality performance and cybersecurity. Modern software consumption demands require continuous updates and fixes, which can result in time losses or earnings for businesses and potential cybersecurity concerns.

The delays in software development are often caused by the divide between development and operations teams, each with their own priorities. DevOps is a revolutionary concept that combines Development and Operations, breaking down barriers and promoting bi-directional collaboration and effective communication. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to implement DevOps practices and tools to improve efficiency, productivity, and security in software development.

In this course, participants will learn about the advantages of automating processes in software development, how to implement continuous integration and continuous delivery methodologies (CI/CD) to streamline the delivery process, the creation of applications in containers, as well as the design, deployment, and maintenance of automation processes in software development.

Participants will learn about the agile methodology for creating a secure, reliable, and production-ready software product. They will also gain an understanding of DevOps security and testing fundamentals to ensure the quality and security of the software product. Finally, the course will cover how modern telecom infrastructure is delivered using CI/CD and its impact on the industry. Hands-on exercises are included in the course for participants to apply concepts to real-world scenarios.

This course is designed for professionals who are interested to understand the IT software lifecycle management, and how modern enterprise software are maintained and secured.

  • Radio Engineers who wish to understand how modern 5G infrastructure is going to be delivered and maintained.
  • Packet Core Engineers who wish to understand how modern cloud-native 5G core’s lifecycle is being managed.
  • Technical Product Managers, Technical Product Marketing Professionals, Technical Strategy Officials, C-level Decision Makers & Executives, Regulators in any industry that relates to dealing with software.
