FP Complete

FP Complete has collected and honed a set of tools and best practices for our DevOps work over the years. Our team continue to update this list with experience and the ever-improving tooling landscape.

Unlike our Haskell syllabus, we have no yet published our learning material for this syllabus. Please sign up for our DevOps mailing list to get updates on newly available content. Or, if you’re interested in getting starting immediately, check out our training offerings.

Each topic includes reasons to choose a particular tool or approach, and design patterns for high-availability and secure design.
