Course description

Want to learn what separates the NETFLIXs and AMAZONs of the world from traditional organizations trying to achieve continuous delivery? Why are they successful while many organizations struggle to get code out the door?


Pipeline Driven Organizations operate around the idea that automated pipelines make the daily tactical IT decisions:

  • When is it OK to deploy a new version?

  • Is a feature working?

  • When and how to deploy a new environment

  • When to rollback (or forward) a new version

  • Are we compliant and secure?

  • Is the code releasable?

  • Are the infrastructure changes OK?

In traditional organizations, even though automated pipelines may exist, they do not make important & continuous IT decisions. Humans do.

In a pipeline-based organization, experts from various categories of work, spend their time teaching the pipelines how to make proper decisions (using automated specialized tests). In this way, they can trust the pipeline enough to let it make the decisions instead.

Course dates & time

Each session includes a lecture, Q&A, and hands-on coding exercises, as well as optional homework to help connect the days and weeks. 


The course is designed so that it can fit in with your other commitments for work and home.

 It is split into four  3-hour parts spread over two weeks, two times a week.
