DevOps Introduction Course
By Christine Souza

Need a crash course on what DevOps is, how to foster a collaborative environment, and how to measure the effectiveness?

We created a DevOps course, which presents you with a series of interactive questions to test your knowledge. Having just viewed the course myself, I have to say it’s a great introduction to DevOps and what it means for the enterprise. Plus it has a number of key use cases to how our Application Intelligence Platform can help an organization transforming into a DevOps operating model.

Here’s a quick snippet of the course:

Introduction to DevOps – Intro from AppDynamics on Vimeo.

The following learning objectives are covered:

  • How to define DevOps

  • Articulate the trends in enterprise IT that increasingly requires DevOps

  • Implement the tools and practices that enable the DevOps workflow to proactively solve application performance issues

DevOps Use Cases

One of the highlights of this course, for me, is the last section on implementing the tools and practices as the explains a number of really good DevOps use cases structured around a software lifecycle and how our solution can be applied:

For developer teams, the video shows how our ability to monitor Business Transactions is extremely useful when running scenario load or stress tests. The example in the video shows how Business Transaction monitoring can be configured to detect test transactions so that new features are easily identifiable in the AppDynamics console during such a test.

Another key use case the video highlights is the need to be able to easily compare releases and so there is detailed walkthrough that shows how this feature can be used easily.

Next Steps

So if you want to learn more about DevOps and see how AppDynamics can help an enterprises DevOps transformation then please check out the course. If you want a little bit more information then also check out this promo video for the course.

Just a quick post to encourage you to check out our new AppDynamics DevOps Introduction course. This course is part of our AppDynamics University resources.

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally.

DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
