DevOps Engineer Learning Path

Introduction

DevOps has been around since 2007 and was established to bridge the gap between software development teams (dev) and IT operations (ops) teams to help reduce the time it takes to deliver applications and services. 

The philosophy came from Agile and there are four key principles of DevOps:

  1. Automation of the software development lifecycle
  2. Collaboration and communication
  3. Continuous improvement and minmisation of waste
  4. Hyperfocus on user needs with short feedback loop
