Maybe you’ve heard the terms Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery before, but have never really had time to find out what they mean, and how they can help you as a developer.
Perhaps DevOps rings a bell, but it’s not something practiced in your company.
Maybe you understand about source control, using git, and have always had an interest in finding ways to automate the build process.
Or maybe none of this means anything to you (yet).
Whatever the reason you have hit this landing page, you have arrived at a course that can give you a fast track in understanding what this Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) is all about.
This short course is designed to give you an introduction to the concepts, and arm you with the knowledge of why you should be using them in your organization.
Developers with these skills are in hot demand, and there is a reason for that.
Proper implementation of CI and CD into the workplace brings with it processes that can save time, allowing companies to release software more often, fix bugs at a quicker pace, and deliver builds to their users faster, all with more control than you may have thought was possible. The bottom line is the company will make more money, and developers are more valuable as a result.
It is possible to completely automate the build process of your companies software projects, no matter how big or small, and no matter how many developers you have on your team.
Not only that, but you can either completely automate or largely automate the deployment process of your applications as well, depending on whether they are web-based, or mobile-based.
CI and CD are not just buzz words, but bring big benefits to all that use them.
In this course, you find out exactly what these benefits are, and how to get started. In addition, you will find out just what DevOps is, and why it plays a critical role with CI and CD.
The course is mainly aimed at developers looking to take a quick course to understand the basics of why they should adopt the practices, enabling them to move on to more technical, hands-on courses or training using the specific tools suitable for their organization.
With that said, this course goes through a number of the more popular tools used by developers and even has a case study showing an application being set up for CI and CD, from start to finish.
No real development experience is needed to take the course.
In addition, non-developers such as project managers, and even senior management will obtain benefits from taking this course, obtaining an understanding of why their company should transition to DevOps and implement CI and CD in their workplace.
At just over two hours in length, the course is easily digestible in a morning, an afternoon, or evening and will equip you with a solid understanding of the processes, and the reasons why you should be using them, as well as the next step to take.
Click the enroll button to get started, and I look forward to equip you with the knowledge you need to know about Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery.
Who this course is for:
- Programmers wanting to find out about how Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery works and the benefits it brings therm as developers
- Anyone looking for a quick overview of the process of CI and CD
Tim's been a professional software developer for over 40 years. During his career, he has worked for major companies such as Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Saab.
His video courses are used to train developers in major companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Paypal, VW, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and T-Mobile just to name a few (via the Udemy for Business program).
What makes Tim unique is his professional programming career - many instructors have never programmed professionally, let alone had a distinguished professional development career like Tim.
Tim has trained over 1.35 million students how to program, way more than a typical IT Professor at a college does in a lifetime.
In fact, Tim's courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through college programming courses.
"I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months." - Thomas Neal
"I love this guy. I'm in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There's no comparison. Every time I get lost in my textbook, I watch a couple more of these videos and I'm right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in." - Kristen Andreani
"Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fact, I was able to find a job as Java developer with the knowledge gained from this course, so I basically owe Mr. Buchalka my career" - Daniel KubÃ¡nyi
Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Java, Python, C#, Spring Framework, and Android development courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty-five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or anyone else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java and a variety of other languages. In addition, he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field. Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.
Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students. Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.
Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.
Are you ready to start? You can get started today. No previous experience is necessary.
In 2023, video training is the quickest way to learn, and with Tim's experience and training, it is possible for you to become a software developer. You can do this.

The Learn Programming Academy was created by Tim Buchalka, a software developer with 40 years experience, who is also an instructor on Udemy, with over 1.89M+ students in his courses on Java, Python, Android, C# and the Spring framework.
The Academy’s goal in the next three years, is to teach five million people to learn how to program.
Apart from Tim’s own courses, which are all available here, we are working with the very best teachers, creating courses to teach the essential skills required by developers, at all levels.
One other important philosophy is that our courses are taught by real professionals; software developers with real and substantial experience in the industry, who are also great teachers. All our instructors are experienced, software developers!
Our team is busy creating new courses right now.
Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn how to program for the very first time, or to brush up on your existing skills, or to learn new languages and frameworks, the Academy has you covered.
I am a Software Engineer and Xamarin-Certified Mobile Developer.
I have been developing mobile apps for 7 years now, I started when iOS 5 had just been released!
During this years I have created apps for clients, both for private use and for public use. I have created some apps that I wanted to release to the app stores, and have created a lot of apps just for fun. The main platform I use is Xamarin, so I can code Android, Windows, iOS and macOS apps using my favorite language: C#.
I have helped literally thousands of students to learn how to code, both online and in-person, and it has become my passion.
I also love to design apps, whenever I get a little bit (or a lot) stressed when coding, I design apps, either out-of-the-blue concepts, or the next app that I have to code, or a design for a client.
I like to think of myself as an entrepreneur, I am the co-founder of a startup, AlphaBeta, focused on helping Mexicans to adopt digital technologies in their lives, so they become more efficient, and live better lives.
In AlphaBeta I have learned (and taught) how to use tools like Google Classroom, Power BI (super popular with SMEs) and Adobe Experience Design, and some of those courses, have been brought here as well.
My students usually say that I know how to make difficult subjects easy to understand and that I help them learn in the best way possible: by doing.
