IT Ops has traditionally managed servers and the infrastructure through human actions, which often causes delays and mistakes from updates to deployments. Infrastructure from Code removes the human related problems by providing management and provisioning of the Data Center through machine read configuration files. This provides a repeatable, recoverable and often times, more secure Data Center. In this course, Infrastructure from Code: The Big Picture, you'll learn about the concepts of DevOps, and the process and tools of Infrastructure from Code. You'll delve into learning about automating your processes with a Release Pipeline, how it can shift the performance of IT Ops, and finally a variety of tools to start building repeatable, safe, and reliable deployments. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a starting point to move past this overview and into building your own Release Pipeline for Infrastructure from Code.

Course Overview
IT Ops has traditionally managed servers and the infrastructure such as messaging and authentication through human actions, tying up valuable resources and causing delays. Humans also make mistakes and can be slow to recover from them. Hi I'm Jason Helmick, and I want to introduce you to a component of DevOps that can change all of that, known as infrastructure from code. You will learn how automating your processes with a release pipeline can dramatically shift the performance of IT operations, providing a repeatable and safe process for deploying and updating your servers and infrastructure services. In this big picture course, you will understand the four stages of the release pipeline, and be introduced to the available tools for each stage. Now if you're ready to improve your deployment time, and prove recovery time, and lower the failures due to change, this is the place to start. So from all of us here at Pluralsight, we love to learn, and I hope you do too.
