CI/CD: The what, why, and how

Building automated workflows for faster releases

What is DevOps?

DevOps is a holistic business practice that combines people, technologies, cultural practices, and processes to bring previously siloed teams together to deliver better software faster. Successful DevOps implementations are viewed as an organizational change when it comes to software development. Learn about DevOps and how to optimize software delivery with DevOps throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

6 DevOps pitfalls and how to avoid them

DevOps is a transformative practice. Companies in almost every industry are increasingly adopting DevOps to give teams the time and freedom they need to tackle more challenging projects. But whenever you embrace a new strategy, there can be hiccups. Here are some common issues developers and organizations run into when adopting DevOps—and how to overcome them.

Defining DevOps: Build Your DevOps Practice on GitHub

GitHub is an integrated platform that takes companies from idea to planning to production, combining a focused developer experience with powerful, fully managed development, automation, and test infrastructure.

Accelerating DevOps with collaboration and GitHub Actions

As high-performing software teams know, CI/CD is key for DevOps success. But CI/CD is only part of your software workflow—every step of your software development process is an opportunity to move faster, together.

What is containerization?

When it’s successfully implemented, DevOps can transform software reliability by making the software development lifecycle (SDLC) more predictable through a combination of automation and cultural practices that favor deep collaboration and incremental releases. With less chance for variation, fewer code-related issues make it to production.

DevOps fundamentals: Defining DevOps principles

From headlines to job descriptions, DevOps has emerged as an outsized buzzword over the past decade—and for good reason. Organizations that successfully adopt DevOps often see big gains in software development speeds, improved reliability, faster product iterations, and have an easier time scaling their services.

The fundamentals of continuous deployment in DevOps

What is continuous deployment? Continuous deployment (CD) is an automated software release practice where code changes are deployed to different stages as they pass predefined tests. The goal of CD is to facilitate faster releases by using automation to help remove the need for human intervention as much as possible during the deployment process.

The fundamentals of continuous integration in DevOps

What is continuous integration in DevOps? Continuous integration (CI) is a foundational DevOps practice where development teams integrate code changes from multiple contributors into a shared repository. Automation is used throughout this process to merge, build, and test code to facilitate a higher speed of software development. This process is often called a CI pipeline. When implemented properly, CI enables organizations to quickly identify defects and ship higher-quality software faster.

What's next for DevOps?

The goal of DevOps has stayed the same, but our tools, infrastructure, and operating models have changed. To support modern software delivery, it’s critical for organizations to know and prepare for what’s coming next.

Culture matters: How healthy teams build better software

It’s more important than ever to build a healthy engineering culture. Healthy cultures rally developers around a common goal: shipping their best work. Your culture is key to recruiting and retaining the talent you need to ship exceptional customer experiences.

Should we think of DevOps as a methodology?

There’s one word that perfectly describes successful DevOps: flow. As individuals, we experience a state of flow when everything in our work comes together naturally and at the right time. DevOps enables that kind of flow at the organizational level through a combination of tooling, culture, and process.

Collaborating in DevOps Culture

Enterprises are learning that a large measure of success for adopting DevOps is the spirit of collaboration it instills among teams.

Collaboration is the key to DevOps success

In a recent TechTarget study, 70 percent of organizations reported they had adopted DevOps.

Companies’ digital transformation with GitHub

Almost everything we use today is based on code. To be successful in today's ever changing environment, companies need to meet their customers' expectations, to create the best possible experience and deliver excellence when it comes to software development.

Developer happiness and innovation in the enterprise

Today’s leaders drive innovation by building better developer experiences

SRE vs DevOps

DevOps and site reliability engineering (SRE) are practices that work together to help development teams build , implement, and optimize products. Together they help people work toward a common goal by managing different development processes. Owning different parts of the process means there are differences in the way they operate, provide support, and utilize tools.

A guide to DevOps tools and DevOps automation toolchains

What are DevOps tools? As an umbrella term, DevOps tools include any number of applications that automate processes within the software development lifecycle (SDLC), improve organizational collaboration, and implement monitoring and alerts. Organizations will often invest in building out a "DevOps toolchain," or collection of tools to use in its DevOps practice, to address each stage of the SDLC.

DevOps monitoring tools: Automating your DevOps monitoring processes

At its core, DevOps is a fundamentally data-driven practice. The ability to continuously improve the code that drives a product comes from understanding how it performs, what risks it introduces, and where to find opportunities. Monitoring tools tap into each layer of a product’s technology stack to deliver the data to catch code errors early, improve operational efficiency, and respond rapidly to changes in usage.
