FREMONT, CA: Numerous academic areas and higher education institutions, in general, have been sluggish to embrace DevOps. This latency can be caused by various factors, including a general lack of understanding of what DevOps is and how it might be applied inside academics. Academics have noticed that DevOps has matured in the industry, and more functionality has been put into a single platform. Early adopters at educational institutions throughout the world have recognized the value of DevOps in teaching coding and a variety of other disciplines and use cases.
The benefits of incorporating DevOps culture, operations, workflows, and technology into the classroom are enormous. Departments that teach how to code, such as computer science, engineering, and chemistry, have fully embraced the DevOps philosophy. Tasks, issues, epics, and merge requests are all worked on cooperatively by students. The focus has switched from a single artifact - the code to the process itself - understanding git, collaboration, branching, merging, automated testing, and automated deployment — with this new approach. DevOps is being used by early adopters throughout all stages, from manage to defend, with the highest utilization in producing and validating.
Applying DevOps workflows to classroom duties like code management, grading, feedback, and course assessment has yielded significant results for faculty. Faculty are introducing various project-oriented courses, and students are taking advantage of all of the CI/CD resources available to them. DevOps allows for real-time review of every commit through the use of CI/CD pipelines.
Exams can be evaluated using CI/CD pipelines and kept in markdown. Faculty and teaching assistants can use DevOps to avoid plagiarism with version control and project-based learning and generate reports on the number and kind of commits, merge requests, and failed pipelines. This information can help with course design and student retention. Increased teamwork and student advantages have been quantified and published in peer-reviewed papers. Gradually, as more courses go online and students learn and work remotely, the benefits of cooperation are becoming more prominent.
