AGILE METHODLOGY

What does that mean?? During your studies you would have encountered the dreaded Waterfall method of software development…..well, those days are gone! Being Agile is a mindset, a different way of approaching development and deployment of software. Think of your cell phone and the number of updates your apps receive each month. This is agile software development at work! Why wait months to create new features and release those in one-hit when you can release them as they become available and keep increasing your revenue stream. You must think Agile to stay ahead of your competitors!  

 

DEVOPS CI/CD PIPELINE

What is CI/CD? This is where Google and YouTube can help you with some high-level guides to enlighten you! There are literally 100’s of tools you can employ to assist CI/CD. You will get the chance to use cutting-edge, industry leading tools and to be expert in those soon. 

 

WHAT CAN AXA DO FOR YOU?

Your path to DevOps enlightenment will be guided by experts in the field. Being a temporary member of different teams is a key tenant of DevOps.
