If you want to get to know whats going on in software industry, how most successful companies works, and find best case studies and practices that matches to your business, you will find this course very useful. One of the best parts of the course is "Recommended Resources". There you can get deeper on areas you are more interested. Bad part? Quizzes and Exam! I don't think questions like "Who wrote this" or "who said that" would be useful in any types of courses, specially in Computer Science.

I have finished the course right now and I strongly suggest taking the course and watching it. There is so much information about different areas and aspect of development and operation in an organization that can be used for transformation and even improvement. In fact, there is a part that Mr. Willis talk about mindset in the organization; and this course helped me to look at things differently. Besides that, there are many course recommended resources that is provided which I believe would take me months to just search for those topics! Thanks to Linux Foundation and a very special thank to Mr. John Willis.

It was a really great course, fantastic overview of DevOps! It navigates from enterprise models, organizations patterns, to concrete patterns about continuous delivery and feedback loops, and even talk about communication patterns. John gives us a lot of material, readings, videos, which help us to deep dive. Loved it!
