Description of module content:

The aim of this module is to provide you with the knowledge, understanding, and practice of modern software delivery. The module focuses on the theory and practice of DevOps – the combination of software development and software operations. This integration focuses on continuous delivery and improvement of the software development process through modern tools and practices, combining agile methods and lean concepts.
