This self-paced Introduction to DevOps course will teach you how DevOps has brought together years of the most effective and proven practices from development and operations (Agile, Lean, and more) – and aligned them around common characteristics: value, cross-functional collaboration, agility, and strong teams.  DevOps is really the marrying of process, infrastructure, and product.
