“DevOps Foundation was a big step for me in adopting industry-standard terminology and significantly improved my ability to succinctly communicate core principles. Prior to that my language and vocabulary reflected the organizational roles and language that we had developed internally in our application of DevOps practices. It also “connected quite a few dots” that I knew were related but wasn’t clear on how or why.”

-Jack Maher, Digital Transformation Evangelist
