Whew, this has gone on for a much longer word count than I expected! Is the new SDP certification for you? Yes, I believe that it is, if you are:
And of course, if you are any of those roles working in a development shop that already practices SAFe, then, yes, this course is for you. After all, SAI has been preaching DevOps for a while now, the knowledge represented in this course is nothing new, only the certification is.
One short, personal note: My first introduction to DevOps was back in 2014 and it was old style. We did big-bang deployments that touched thousands of users all at once, and it was a flaming dumpster fire. The lady who was standing in as the release coordinator routinely clocked in 70-hour weeks at every single deployment. For weeks at a time. That's a horrible thing to do to any human being.
Since then I’ve helped many organizations do a better job at DevOps, and it’s hugely rewarding to see how far this discipline has come. Wherever you sit on your company’s org chart, you owe it to your company, the people around you, and yourself to get these skills under your belt. Don't worry about the SAFe .
Thank you all for your time, I hope this post has been helpful.
