Course Description

DevOps Culture and Practice Enablement (DO500) provides an immersive experience in DevOps culture, modern software development practices, and modern application development architectures. Through teamwork, you explore foundational DevOps principles and complete hands-on labs that deploy containerized applications with Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform. 

This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.11, Red Hat® Ansible Engine 2.7, and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5. 

About this course

What You'll Learn

Many organizations are making or want to make a shift toward a modern application development and delivery model. This model, called DevOps, promises to provide streams of new features in shorter delivery windows by employing techniques such as continuous integration/continuous delivery and agile development practices. Entering the world of digital transformation requires not only a technological shift, but a cultural shift. 

To help make the shift to DevOps, this collection of practices and exercises take you through a five-day, simulated-organization residency. You can expect to be exposed to practices such as event storming, social contract, and impact mapping, among many more exercises that can be found in the Open Practice Library. You will also be exposed to labs that demonstrate how we use Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat Ansible in conjunction with Jenkins to automate the build and deployment of a sample to-do-list application and its required infrastructure.
