It's important to know why the roles, philosophy, and principles behind release engineering - a relatively new discipline of software engineering - are used for building and delivering software. In this course, you'll learn about the automated release system called Rapid, and how it can be used to provide a framework for delivering reliable software builds and releases. You'll also learn about configuration management and the importance of collaboration between release engineers and site reliability engineers.
