Continuous Delivery is a software engineering approach in which teams produce and test software in short cycles, ensuring that the software can be reliably released at any time. This approach enables building, testing and releasing deployable software faster and more often. When implemented correctly, the result is predictable, routine software releases that can be deployed at any time during the engineering process – even in large-scale, distributed systems and complex production environments. Continuous delivery completely eliminates the need for many of the painful integration, testing and hardening phases that traditionally follow code development.

In this 3-day instructor-led course we walk you through the technical practices, necessary tools and customized application of an enterprise Continuous Delivery program. Students will learn about workflow integration through hands-on labs, class demos, class participation exercises, video tutorials and traditional slides and lecture. The class is highly interactive, encouraging individuals to fully participate in all exercises to retain maximum benefits of the learning. The technologies and tools used in this class include: C#, Java, TFS, Git, Jenkins, Maven, Chef and Puppet. This course will give you the roadmap you need to make your release process a business advantage instead of a limitation to meeting business goals.
