The Core DevOps Mastery (Expert Level) benchmark assesses your ability to use DevOps tools such as Ansible and Jenkins and recognition of DevOps practices like DevSecOps, AIOps, DataOps, and MLOps. You will be evaluated on your ability to identify the key features and benefits of Jenkins and Ansible, create and distribute Jenkins builds, work with Ansible plugins, and outline best practices for implementing DevSecOps, DataOps, AIOps, and MLOps. Learners who score high on this benchmark demonstrate that they have a solid understanding of advanced DevOps concepts.
