Continuous Delivery Ecosystem Foundation (CDEF)


LENGTH: 24 Hours (3 days)

PRICE: €2 235,00


This course is designed for participants who are engaged in the design,
implementation, and management of DevOps deployment pipelines
and toolchains 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 highlighted in bestselling books such as
“Continuous Delivery,” “Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and
DevOps: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations,” and
more written by thought leaders in the DevOps movement. The Continuous
Delivery Ecosystem Foundation course equips IT professionals with the
broad-based competencies necessary in architecting and orchestrating
effective and efficient automated deployment pipelines. The course materials
will 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 Ecosystem
Foundation exam.
