Better Software Faster with Dave Farley

  2 days


Are you a developer or team lead looking to adopt Continuous Delivery (CD) with your team? Have you heard of CD but aren't sure where to begin?

In this course, Continuous Delivery expert Dave Farley will take you through the principles and practical applications of Continuous Delivery and DevOps, sharing his extensive experience and proven techniques that you can then apply in your own work.

You will develop an understanding of the foundations of Continuous Delivery, discover how CD can improve the quality (and reliability) of your software, and how it can set you up to achieve your business goals.

Ultimately you'll learn to asses your own CD capability as you prepare to put the principles you've learned into practice in your own projects.
