Overview

This course is part of the Microsoft Professional Program in DevOps.

This course provides the fundamental concepts to prepare you for deeper dives into specific DevOps practices. 

We will cover deploying and configuring standardized infrastructure, automating builds and deployments using continuous integration and continuous deployment with Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and automating testing before release and whilst in production. 

The course will also cover continuous learning from production, and how to improve and scale business results based on application monitoring.

After completing this course, you should be able to understand how to begin crafting a release pipeline that includes continuous integration techniques, continuous testing practices, monitoring, treating infrastructure and configuration as code, and deploying frequently and automatically. 

It is intended for both Development and Operations professionals, who are interested in learning and adopting DevOps practices.

E. completed this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
In my honest opinion, this course is tiresome. There is too much talk and readings you have to do. Although there are labs, the sections before the Labs are just too tiring and unengaging.
