Course Description

Welcome to the "Shift Left: Accelerating Quality and Efficiency" course, an in-depth exploration of the fundamentals and best practices for optimizing the software development lifecycle by identifying and addressing potential issues at earlier stages. This comprehensive course aims to equip you with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to effectively integrate the Shift Left approach into your development processes, ultimately saving time, resources, and improving the overall quality of your software products.

We will examine the importance of code quality in the Shift Left approach. You will learn how to enforce best practices, such as code reviews, static analysis, blocking PRs and test-driven development, to ensure your codebase remains maintainable, scalable, and free from defects. By embracing these practices, you can reduce the likelihood of introducing new issues and improve the overall stability of your software.

In our chapter on automation efficiency, we will focus on leveraging automation tools and strategies to optimize your development process. By automating repetitive tasks, such as testing, integration, and deployment, you can streamline your pipeline and minimize the risk of human error. We will also discuss how to select the right tools and techniques for your specific project needs, ensuring that your team can work more efficiently and effectively.

Lastly, our course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of various prevention techniques, including vulnerability scanning, threat modeling, and secure coding practices. You will learn how to proactively identify and mitigate potential security risks, ensuring that your software is not only high-performing but also secure from potential threats.

By the end of this course, you will have gained a comprehensive understanding of the Shift Left approach, empowering you to create more efficient development pipelines, reduce risk, and deliver high-quality, reliable software products that meet the ever-evolving needs of your users.
