About the course

Candidates for the AZ-400 exam are DevOps professionals who combine people, process, and technologies to continuously deliver valuable products and services that meet end-user needs and business objectives.

DevOps professionals streamline delivery by optimizing practices, improving communications and collaboration, and creating automation. They design and implement strategies for application code and infrastructure that allow for continuous integration, testing, delivery, monitoring, and feedback.

Design an Azure DevOps Strategy is intended as a stand-alone course that can also be taken as part of a learning path, in conjunction with other courses while working toward the Azure DevOps Engineer Expert (AZ-400) exam.
