“This curriculum is different from other DevOps trainings I attended earlier as the focus is on Transformational Leadership, Culture, behavioral change & measures for driving and implementing DevOps in an organization rather than just the technical aspects of DevOps. Highly recommend this to anyone who is embarking on DevOps adoption in their organization and has prior experience/knowledge of DevOps concepts.”
