DevOps Toolkit

Downloadable Resources, Instant Access

Primary goal for all DevOps Engineers is to increase automation thereby reducing or eliminating manual tasks and human interaction in order to deploy software and configuration changes more efficiently and with fewer errors or failures.

More Uses of the DevOps Toolkit:

  • Formulate: software security fundamentals, cryptography, Penetration Testing (application and/or network), source code analysis, DevOps.

  • Troubleshoot application, infrastructure, and network issues with the development team, other DevOps team members, and the clients network/hosting teams.

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make DevOps investments work better.
