Hi everyone, my name is Richard Seroter and welcome to my course, Implementing DevOps in the Real World.

I am a Senior Director of Product at Pivotal, and have spent years working in DevOps environments. I’ve taken what I’ve learned and studied, and put it all into this course.

Did you know that high performing companies deploy to production 200x more frequently than low performers? Or that they recover from failures 24x faster? That matters. In this course, we are going to dig into DevOps and make this more real to you. Instead of just talking about the theory, I want us to discuss the specific practices that leading companies use to improve how they solve business problems with software.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • How “enterprise” DevOps can differ from small company DevOps
  • What a typical week might look like for a DevOps team
  • The reason behind the activities performed by those teams
  • Specific tips for getting started today
By the end this course, you’ll know what changes you may need to make to adopt a DevOps culture, and how to do it.

Before beginning the course it’s helpful for you to be familiar with general concepts around software development and delivery, but don’t worry, there’s something for everyone here.

I hope you’ll join me as we figure out practical DevOps with my Implementing DevOps in the Real World course, at Pluralsight.
