NICF- Agile Continuous Delivery

Overview

Continuous Delivery is the natural extension of Continuous Integration, an approach in which teams ensure that every change to the system is releasable, and release any version with the push of a button.

Continuous Delivery helps us deliver frequently and get quick feedback on what users care about.

ACD-quote

This 3-day course is on Continuous Delivery (CD) practices, essential for software development teams that aspire to ensure their software’s immediate release and application at any point in time.
 
This advanced technical course involves extensive coding and hands on work that will help participants gain understanding of concepts such as deployment pipeline and DevOps culture and practical experience in performing CD.

Note: This course uses AWS platform to build the CD workflow hence it is mandatory to have AWS account (trail account at least).

This course is part of the Agile Series offered by NUS-ISS.
