Description

This course is designed for participants who are engaged in the design, implementation, and management of DevOps deployment pipelines and tool chains that support Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Testing and potentially Continuous Deployment. The course highlights underpinning processes, metrics, APls and cultural considerations with Continuous Delivery.

Key benefits of Continuous Delivery will be covered including increased velocity to assist organizations to respond to market changes rapidly, thus being able to outmaneuver competition, reduce risk and lower costs while releasing higher quality solutions. Increased productivity and employee morale by having more activities performed by pipelines instead of humans so teams can focus on vision while pipelines do the execution.

Built upon the principles and practices of the bestselling book “Continuous Delivery” by Jez Humble and David Farley, and the “Continuous Delivery Live Lessons” video course by Jez Humble, the Continuous Delivery Architect course equips IT professionals with the broad-based competencies necessary in architecting and orchestrating effective and efficient automated deployment pipelines.

Each learner will be provided digital access to the “Continuous Delivery” eBook and LiveLessons videos. The course materials will also include practical artifacts, templates, and lexicons collected by the author, Marc Hornbeek to assist learners post-class.

This certification positions learners to successfully complete the Continuous Delivery Architect exam.
