Students in this course are interested in implementing DevOps processes or in passing the Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions certification exam.


Fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles. It would be helpful to have experience in an organization that delivers software.


It is recommended that you have experience working in an IDE, as well as some knowledge of the Azure portal. However, students who may not have a technical background in these technologies, but who are curious about DevOps practices as a culture shift, should be able to follow the procedural and expository explanations of continuous integration regardless.


Besides, students also need to have a fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles. It would be helpful to have experience in an organization that delivers software.


Students should have fundamental knowledge about Azure, experience with virtual machines and containers, and some exposure to automation and scripting.


Experience working in a software development or operations environment with either Windows or Linux would be helpful but is not essential. Students should also have knowledge of general application development and deployment processes
