DevOps Culture and Practice Enablement (DO500) provides an immersive experience in DevOps culture, modern software development practices, and modern application development architectures. Through teamwork, you explore foundational DevOps principles and complete hands-on labs that deploy containerized applications with Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform.
This collection of practices and exercises take you through a five-day, simulated-organization residency. You can expect to be exposed to practices such as event storming, social contract, and impact mapping, among many more exercises that can be found in the Open Practice Library. You will also be exposed to labs that demonstrate how we use Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat Ansible in conjunction with Jenkins to automate the build and deployment of a sample to-do-list application and its required infrastructure.
Students bring their own laptops to this training with software pre-installed according to these instructions.
The students will interact with a single OpenShift cluster shared by all students.
This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.11, Red Hat® Ansible Engine 2.7, and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5.
This course is designed for developers, architects, and product owners.

Continuous integration, deployment, and delivery
- Delve into the practices of value stream mapping and metric-based process mapping.
- Explore the foundational practices of continuous integration, continuous deployment, and continuous delivery.
User story mapping and value slicing
- Learn how to use the event storming discovery practice.
Automated testing, part 1
- Examine the user story mapping, value slicing, and empathy mapping practices.
Automated testing, part 2
- Develop an understanding of the test-driven development and business-driven development foundational practices, often referred to as automated testing.
Pipelines as code
- Complete the automated testing lab begun in part 1.
- Explore continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines using Jenkins.
