This course sets the foundation with coding stage best practices and areas of focus. The key factor in coding is deployment of lean procedures and waste avoidance. A corollary of lean is component management and thinking in layers. We will draw parallels to API-led strategy, microservices and container management. Once coding is done, the commit stage should be highly automated once found working manually. Then we will walk through and give detail for each of the nine commit stages. Build management covers the control of automation, timeliness, consistency, quality, content and code commit. Target audience is technical people.
