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 course is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.11, Red Hat® Ansible Engine 2.7, and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5.
Many organizations are making or want to make a shift toward a modern application development and delivery model. This model, called DevOps, promises to provide streams of new features in shorter delivery windows by employing techniques such as continuous integration/continuous delivery and agile development practices. Entering the world of digital transformation requires not only a technological shift, but a cultural shift.
To help make the shift to DevOps, 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.

Audience for this course
This course is designed for developers, architects, and product owners. If you’re a product owner with no programming experience, you will be paired with a student developer to help you through the labs.
- Possess knowledge of and/or experience in agile practices
- Have experience using agile methodologies, such as scrum
- Have full access to your laptop
- Be able to install various software features that will be used in the hands-on labs
Impact on the organization
Many companies are finding that their current organizational structure and software development practices will not yield the promises of digital transformation, which include shorter time to market, quick feedback loops, and A/B testing. These companies need to adopt DevOps culture and practices to be successful in their digital transformation.
This course introduces you to real-world DevOps culture principles and modern software development practices. You will develop a modern software application using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat Ansible Automation, and other industry-standard DevOps software, tools, and techniques. You’ll be prepared to use DevOps principles and open source solutions to start and lead the digital transformation journey at your organization.
Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.
Impact on the individual
As a result of attending this course, you will have experienced a DevOps culture, been exposed to numerous DevOps practices, and implemented a small application using what you’ve learned. You should be able to demonstrate these skills:
- Deploy a small multi-tiered application to an OpenShift cluster.
- Work as an effective member of an agile team.
- Discover, prioritize, and document desired software features and functionality.
- Develop software using pair and mob programming styles.
