DevOps Training and CoursewareWeb Age offers DevOps Training to introduce students to the theory of DevOps and the tools and processes behind DevOps.

The target audience for DevOps Training includes developers who need to work within a DevOps program, managers who oversee agile development and continuous deployment environments, and operations people who install and maintain the tools and environments of DevOps.

There are several options for training, including traditional classroom courses, live virtual courses, and soon, online video training.

Traditional classroom training has the advantage of allowing discussions between the students. Since EA students often have extensive experience in software development and business analysis, students usually find discussions interesting and valuable.

Live Virtual Training places some limitations on in-class discussions (just due to the nature of teleconferencing), but has the advantage of convenience - architects typically don’t need to travel to attend the course.

Video training offers the most convenience. Students can view the videos on their own schedule and at any convenient pace. You can also view the videos multiple times to lock-in the knowledge. Online video training will generally be the most economical training options.

WA2404 Managing Software Dependencies and Artifacts with Nexus, Apache Maven, and Apache Ivy

“Get the jar files out of version control”.  “Get the deployable files out of version control”.  These commands are a common theme in software development.  Many developers have viewed binary artifacts in version control as a bad thing, regardless of the version control used.  However, the alternative usually involves developers keeping a set of libraries, or the development organization keeping a “blessed” build machine that stores all the approved artifacts.  Not to mention the inevitable folder of “Gold build” deployable files (jar, war, or exe files).  Neither of these approaches nor the many combinations of these approaches is really satisfactory.  Development and operations organizations need to have control over what dependency artifacts are used to build their software and central management of the resulting deployable artifacts.

What is DevOps?

DevOps is short for Development and Operations. It is an approach to delivering software solutions in a continuous manner based on lean (minimizing waste of resources, reducing number of defects, etc.) and agile practices. DevOps help manage complexities of Enterprise applications by creating a collaborative environment with participants coming not only from Development and Operations, but also from Business, QA, and other stakeholder groups. In other words, DevOps is not only about Development and Operations! The DevOps practice has been popularized by organizations adopting the Cloud-as-a-Service computing model.
 

Why DevOps?

To rapidly deliver reliable, scalable micro and macro services that are critical for the business time to market and value. The technical benefits are continuous delivery, reduction in component complexity and agility in problem resolution. The business benefits are agility in delivery of business benefit, increased stability and more focus on competitive advantage, rather than “keeping the lights on”.
 

What are the main goals of DevOps?

  • Shift Left. DevOps goes hand-in-hand with Agile software development methodologies. This places emphasis on rapid identification of defects.
  • Competitive Advantage. Faster
  • Technology Enabled Business. Time to market and value
  • Agility. Any developer or server environment should be able to be reloaded in a short amount of time, e.g. 4 hours from request.
  • Happy people. Effective DevOps implementations incur less daily stress and remove constant fire drills. This converts to better customer experience, both internally and externally.

What are the steps of DevOps adoption?

  1. Identify your business drivers
  2. Get educated
  3. Articulate DevOps' value proposition
  4. Define one or more scenarios of software delivery with DevOps techniques
  5. Produce a road map
  6. Gain stakeholder buy-in
  7. Establish governance for risk mitigation
  8. Establish a core team
  9. Invest in infrastructure (not applicable if you operate in the Cloud)
  10. Pilot
  11. Enterprise roll-out

DevOps in a Nutshell
DevOps is nowadays a big thing and in this post we will try to explain what this practice is in practical terms. The term DevOps is rather limiting, indicating that only Development and Operations are involved, which is not absolutely true (as is always the case in this life) — DevOps is not only about Development and Operations!

Standing Up DevOps
While originally DevOps was popularized by Web (Cloud) -based companies, such as Flickr and Netflix, large enterprises, in one form or another, have long been using select DevOps practices. For deeper penetration of DevOps in the Enterprise space and establishing it as a true enterprise capability, it needs to be placed under control within the existing enterprise governance processes.

Linux Containers
LinuX Containers (LXC) is an OS-level virtualization that allows multiple Linux systems to run on a single physical machine in a multi-tenant arrangement. This type of virtualization is extremely lightweight with every virtual machine (container) being mapped into the booted host OS obviating the need to boot from their own OS image.

Configuration Management – Just Do It!
Configuration Management, as applied in DevOps, is the practice of using tools to manage the configuration of our technical architecture. Put simply, we document the desired state of one or more servers in a machine-readable form, and then use a configuration management tool (e.g. Chef, Puppet, Salt, or Ansible) to setup the real items to match the configuration.
