Devops training courses for UK IT professionals

Useful devops training courses and resources for differing skill levels


The current popularity of the term 'devops' could lead to it being mistaken for business jargon. But the ideology beneath the buzz is definitely worth examining.

The phrase is a compound of 'development' and 'operations' and loosely refers to the practice of strengthening connections and information flow across multiple departments with the goal of facilitating faster, more streamlined and efficient practices surrounding the development and launch of new applications and other technologies.

Adopting these practices is helping large organisations to significantly reduce the time it takes to release applications, so understandably more businesses are taking note.

For a more detailed definition of the term read: What is devops?

A strong component of workplace practices embodied by devops is the use of automation to streamline processes and free up the workforce’s time for more productive tasks.

For developers and other IT professionals, it’s essential to stay abreast of what devops means for work practices and keep your skill set and knowledge up to date. Several important software tools for devops include Docker, Ansible, Terraform, Jenkins and Amazon Web Services, among others.
