I'm a senior director at VMware, and I've spent years building and working in DevOps‑style product teams and talking to companies who are on that journey, too. In this course, we're going to talk about the messy, real‑life scenarios where you're trying to make DevOps work, and we'll go through some proven techniques to make DevOps successful, even in the trickiest locations. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include solving the people‑related challenges, improving or replacing the processes that get in the way, addressing complicated technology scenarios as well. By the end of this course, you'll know a handful of techniques to start immediately applying to the people, process, and technology challenges that make it hard to do DevOps successfully.
