You know the ideas around DevOps, but how do you actually put those ideas into practice? In this course, learn about why DevOps matters, and see a detailed walk-through of the practices and procedures that help you get started with DevOps today.
At the core of DevOps is a thorough understanding of how to optimize software delivery for throughput and quality. In this course, Implementing DevOps in the Real World, you'll learn how to introduce common DevOps practices into your organization. First, you'll learn the fundamental principles behind DevOps, and quickly see how to put those in action. Next, you’ll discover how leading companies approach team dynamics, automating infrastructure, and break down organizational silos. Finally, you'll explore how to fundamentally change how to build and run software. When you’re finished with this course, you'll have a foundational understanding of the core practices of DevOps teams, and the reason behind them.

Course Overview Hey everyone, my name is Richard Seroter, and welcome to my course Implementing DevOps in the Real World. I'm a senior director of product at Pivotal, and I've spent years working in DevOps environments. I've taken what I've learned and studied and put it all into this course. Did you actually know that high performing companies deploy to production 200 times more frequently than low performers or that they recover from failure 24 times faster? That matters. In this course, we're going to dig into DevOps and make this more real to you instead of just talking about the theory. I want us to discuss the specific practices that leading companies use to improve how they solve business problems with software. Some of the major things we're going to cover here is how enterprise DevOps can differ from how small companies may run DevOps, what a typical week might look like for a DevOps team, the reason behind the activities performed by those teams, specific tips for getting started today. By the end of this course, you'll know what changes you need to make to adopt to DevOps culture and exactly how to do it. Before beginning this course, it's helpful for you to be familiar with general concepts around software development and delivery. But don't worry, there's something here for everyone. I really hope you'll join me as we figure out practical DevOps with my Implementing DevOps in the Real World course here at Pluralsight.
