Before deployment, a project, application, fix, new utility, or function must be bundled into a deployable artifact. This practice is called "packaging" and is an essential part of the "DevOps toolchain." In this course, you'll explore the concept of software packaging and recognize its core characteristics and benefits. You'll identify the components of an application package, and describe the standards, patterns, processes, tools, and best practices involved in application packaging. You'll then outline the tasks involved in each packaging stage of the DevOps lifecycle. Next, you'll examine the architecture of continuous packaging and the container-based application package. You'll identify the benefits of delivering container-based and cloud-native application bundles and outline the different application package distribution approaches. Finally, you'll learn how to use standard tools for packaging open-source applications.
