Learn How Innovative Tech Companies Operate In Our Intro to DevOps Course


Looking to break into tech? Coding skills are just the beginning — you’ll also need to understand how software is created and how development teams work together to ensure a quality end product.

That means you’ll need to know DevOps — literally the combination of “development” and “operations.” Since it was introduced in 2007, DevOps quickly became the industry standard for how developers work within a larger team at innovative, fast-paced organizations. It’s used at early stage startups and legacy tech companies alike.

So what is it, exactly? DevOps is a system of collaboration and practices that bring together teams that have traditionally worked separately. Thanks to DevOps, developers can release software faster and at a higher quality, because workflows are more streamlined and more tasks can be automated.

Studies show that up to 74% of tech organizations have implemented some form of DevOps, and DevOps skills are in high demand for everything from Web and Mobile Developers to Data Scientists and Systems Engineers. In other words, learning DevOps is a valuable skill in the job market — and we’ll show you everything you need to know in our new Intro to DevOps course.
