Microsoft Professional Program for DevOps
Ship. Iterate. Repeat.
To support companies to be more agile, the lines between development and operations are becoming increasingly blurred. Through continuous integration and deployment, students will learn how to react to changing market conditions.
DevOps is the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to end users. Learn about continuous integration and deployment, infrastructure as code, testing, databases, containers, and application monitoring: skills necessary for a DevOps culture in your workplace. Each course in the Microsoft Professional Program in DevOps features hands-on labs so you can practice with the most sought after skills. Assessments that require more than just memorization ensure that you have mastered these new skills.
