Class Prerequisites

Experience in the following is required for this Azure class:

  • Fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles.
  • Experience working in an IDE, as well as some knowledge of the Azure portal. However, students who may not have a technical background in these technologies, but who are curious about DevOps practices as a culture shift, should be able to follow the procedural and expository explanations of continuous integration regardless.

Experience in the following would be useful for this Azure class:

  • Experience in an organization that delivers software.
