Introduction to DevOps

Introduction to DevOps...

DevOps is a combination of Development (Software Development) and Operations (Software Productions/IT Operations...)
1) What is DevOps?

> DevOps is not a technology or tool, it is a concept of behavior, and It is an 
  extension of Agile Methodology...

> The DevOps is a set of practices designed to overcome the gap between 
  development, QA and Operations by effective communication and collaboration,  incorporating continuous integration process with automated deployment. 

> DevOps helps to increase an organization's speed to deliver applications and 
  services. It allows organizations to serve their customers better and compete 
  more strongly in the market.

> There are four basic continuous processes in DevOps:

Continuous Integration
Continuous Delivery
Continuous Testing
Continuous Monitoring
2) Relationship Between Agile and DevOps

> Agile Development is an umbrella term for several iterative and incremental 
  software development methodologies. 

> The most popular agile methodologies include Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Crystal, Lean Development, and Feature-Driven Development (FDD).

> On the other hand, DevOps is about a culture where development, and operations collaborate to give maximum throughput and high-end outcomes. 

> Similar to Agile, there are ways through which DevOps can be implemented such as deep communication and automated deployment. 

> Agile is all about software development while DevOps deals with software 
  development and operations.

Note: Therefore one thing is clear that DevOps is an extension of Agile 
      methodology and it is always fruitful to integrate these two rather than 
      replacing with one another.
3) DevOps Lifecycle

> DevOps is deep integration between development and operations. Understanding DevOps is not possible without knowing DevOps lifecycle.

Here is a brief information about the Continuous DevOps life-cycle:

i. Development

> In this DevOps stage the development of software takes place constantly. In this phase, the entire development process is separated into small development cycles.  This benefits DevOps team to speed up software development and delivery process.

ii. Testing

> QA team use tools like Selenium to identify and fix bugs in the new piece of code.

iii. Integration

> In this stage, new functionality is integrated with the prevailing code, and 
  testing takes place. Continuous development is only possible due to continuous integration and testing.

iv. Deployment

> In this phase, the deployment process takes place continuously. It is performed in such a manner that any changes made any time in the code, should not affect the functioning of high traffic application.

v. Monitoring

> In this phase, operation team will take care of the inappropriate system behavior or bugs which are found in production.

4) Software Tools for DevOps

> As DevOps is the collaboration of Development, QA and Operations, it is obvious that a single tool cannot be adequate for all the needs. So there are multiple tools required in each stage to perform all the operations successfully.

Popular Tool for DevOps Automation:

> Git : Version Control System tool
> Jenkins : Continuous Integration tool
> Selenium : Continuous Testing tool
> Puppet, Chef, Ansible : Configuration Management and Deployment tools
> Nagios : Continuous Monitoring tool
> Docker : Containerization tool

How do all these tools work together?
> This flow may vary from organization to organization as per the requirement.

i. Developers develop the code and this source code is managed by Version Control System tools like Git etc.

ii. Developers send this code to the Git repository and any changes made in the 
  code is committed to this Repository.

iii. Jenkins pulls this code from the repository using the Git plugin and build it 
     using tools like Ant or Maven.

iv. Configuration management tools like puppet deploys & provisions testing 
    environment and then Jenkins releases this code on the test environment on 
    which testing is done using tools like selenium.

v. Once the code is tested, Jenkins send it for deployment on the production server (even production server is provisioned & maintained by tools like puppet).

vi. After deployment It is continuously monitored by tools like Nagios.

vii. Docker containers provides testing environment to test the build features.
5) DevOps and Software Testing

> Software Testing is one of the Process in four basic processes of DevOps...

Static and Dynamic Testing

Static and Dynamic Testing

Static Testing and Dynamic Testing, these are come under the Software Testing...
Software Testing Tutorial
What is Software Testing?

> Software Testing is a process of executing a program or application with the 
  intent of finding the Defects.

Process:  Testing is a process rather than a single activity.
> It can also be stated as the Verification and Validation of Software Application
  with respect to its requirements...

Verification: Verifying weather the Software is correctly implementing or not?

Validation: Validating weather the Software is correctly working or not?
> Verification is done at the starting of the development process. It is also 
called as Static Testing. 

> Static Testing can be done without executing the Software, It includes 
Informal reviews, Technical reviews, walk-throughs, and inspections, etc. to 
evaluate the documents like requirements, design docs, code, plans etc...

> And Static Testing can be conducted using Manual reviews and static analysis or Automated Analysis like Static Test techniques by developers...
> Validation is done at the end of the development process and takes place after Verification is completed.

> It also called as Dynamic Testing, Dynamic Testing can be conducted by executing the Software using Black box and White box Test Design Techniques, and It can be conducted in different levels of Testing, Unit Testing, Integration Testing,  and System Testing using Manual Testing and Automated Testing.

> And Dynamic Testing can be done by using White box and Black box test techniques  by Developers and Testers (Indipendent Testers)

Fimnal Verification/Static Testing is focues on Defect Prevention, and Validation
or Dynamic Testing is focuses on Defect Detection.

SQL Tutorial 10: SQL Functions

1) What is a Function?

A Function is a predefined formula which takes one or more arguments as input,
then process the input, and returns an output.
2) Different types of SQL Functions....

> SQL has many built-in functions for performing calculations on data, SQL Functions
may vary from one Database Management System to another,
Database Management Systems,
MS SQL Server,
SyBase etc...
Note: In this session we are going to discuss MS SQL Server Functions...

SQL Server has different types of Functions

i) String Functions - These Functions are only work on String type data

ii) Numeric Functions - These Functions are only work on Numeric data type

iii) Date Functions - These Functions are only work on Date data type

iv) Coversion Functions etc...
i) SQL String Functions

1) Concat

Concatenates two or more strings together

Select Concat ('gcreddy', '.com');
2) Len

Returns the length of the specified String

Select LEN ('');
Output: 11
3) Left

Extracts a Substring from a String (Starting from left)

Select Left('SQL Tutorial', 3);

SQL Tutorial 9: SQL Joins

SQL Tutorial 9: SQL Joins

The SQL Joins clause is used to combine records from two or more tables in a database. A JOIN is a means for combining fields from two tables by using values common to each.

Consider the following two tables -

Table 1 - CUSTOMERS with ID, NAME, AGE, and CITY Fields...
Table 2 - ORDERS Table with ID, Year, and Amount Fields...

Combine these two tables and create a Result table with ID, NAME, and Amount Fields

//Create a Database
Create Database gcreddyDB;
Use Database;

//Create a Table in the Database,
Create Table Customers
ID int,
Name char(40),
Age int;
City char(30);
//Insert Data...
Insert Into Customers(Id, Name, Age, City) 
values(1, 'Ramesh', 32, 'Hyderabad'),
(2, 'Prasad', 25, 'Delhi'),
(3, 'Venkat', 23, 'Mumbai'),
(4, 'Ramya', 25, 'Chennai');
//Create another table
Create Table Orders
OrderNo int,
Item char(30),
Amount int;
//Insert Data...
Insert Into Customers(OrderNo, Item, Amount) 
values(2, 'TV', 5000),
(3, 'Fridge', 4000),
(4, 'AC', 23, 6000);
Table 1 - Customers Table

Table 2 - ORDERS Table
SQL Tutorial For Beginners
Display Tables one by one,

Select * from Customers;
Select * from Orders;

Now, let us join these two tables in our SELECT statement as shown below.

This would produce the following result.

Note: Here, it is noticeable that the join is performed in the WHERE clause. Several operators can be used to join tables, such as =, <, >, <>, <=, >=, !=, BETWEEN,  LIKE, and NOT; they can all be used to join tables. However, the most common    operator is the equal to symbol.
