A continuous delivery architect is a tool-agnostic individual engaged in the design, implementation and management of DevOps deployment pipelines and toolchains that support Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Testing, and, potentially, Continuous Deployment. A continuous delivery architect is also involved in defining or integrating underpinning processes, metrics, APls and cultural considerations.

Built upon the principles and practises of the bestselling book "Continuous Delivery" by Jez Humble and David Farley and the "Continuous Delivery Live Lessons" video course by Jez Humble, the CDA course equips IT professionals with the broad-based competencies necessary to architect and orchestrate effective and efficient automated deployment pipelines.

Each learner will be provided digital access to the "Continuous Delivery" ebook and video Live Lessons. The course materials will also include practical artifacts, templates and lexicons collected by course author, Marc Hornbeek to assist learners post-class.

Familiarity with IT software development and operations responsibilities
