Continuous delivery is a software engineering approach to automate the delivery of software. It aims at building, testing, and releasing software with greater speed and frequency. The approach helps reduce the cost, time, and risk of delivering changes by allowing for more incremental updates to applications in production.

Students will learn techniques, processes and tools to achieve continuous delivery by connecting and automating all phases of software delivering, including configuration management, automated acceptance testing, dependency management, database migration, and the creation and management of testing and production environments. These techniques are widely applicable to all sorts of different software projects—big, small, highly technical or short sprints to early value.

Using a practical approach, the course covers the CICD tools, strategies and concepts of Continuous Delivery. Students will be able to create their own Jenkins Pipeline to build, test and deployment jobs as well as integrate Jenkins with integration and delivering tools such as Maven, GitHub, Nexus, JMeter, Packer and Terraform.

This course is ideal for engineers, architects, and developers, who wish to learn the core strategies of Continuous Delivery.
