Manage and Optimize Releases with DevOps

DevOps is an area of growth in the IT field across industries. The curriculum for this MicroCred is for beginners, those who would like to see if this career is for them. It has been organized for those with or without a college degree who would like an overview of the profession along with an understanding of major principles of DevOps.

Release orchestration is a series of processes that ensures products have a smooth launch, efficient maintenance, and successful updates. It allows organizations to experience less pain when software is released, and to make the release process a business decision instead of a technical decision. Learners will be able to explain how release orchestration is part of the DevOps process and culture. Learners will be able to differentiate between tools to apply concepts, infer best practices, evaluate tasks to identify logical release orchestration pipeline, and create strategies for implementation.
