Course Overview

DevOps stands for Development and Operations. It refers to people (primarily the development team and the operations team) working together to build, deliver, and run robust software. Under DevOps, the software development process should not only focus on writing code but, at the same time, should also consider other aspects of development such as testing, deployment, and delivery.

Why do you need DevOps testing certification?

The classic organizational structure tends to put strict borders between the Development team, QA team and Operations team. DevOps breaks down the silos and barriers so that the Development (including QA) and the Operations teams have a more efficient way to work together across the entire software lifecycle, from development to delivery. DevOps is a cultural shift focused on building and operating at high velocity.

Who Needs AT*SQA DevOps Testing?

Development roles in DevOps are not limited to people titled as developers or software engineers. This approach involves activities that are continuous: continuous development, continuous integration, continuous delivery, continuous testing, continuous deployment, and continuous monitoring.

The roles include everyone who is involved in making the software before it reaches production, not just full-time software testers, which includes:

  • Product managers
  • Business analysts
  • Product owners
  • Quality assurance testers
  • Software development engineer in test

Similarly, operations roles include everyone who is involved in managing production, including deployment, execution and maintenance. This includes:

  • System operators
  • Systems engineers
  • DBAs
  • Network engineers
  • Security experts
  • DevOps requires people in these roles to work together from the beginning of a software development project until it is delivered, breaking down the walls that stand between different departments.
