The role of a software developer is ever-changing. Dependency management is evolving. And, you are tasked with writing code, security, and code quality. Managing all of this means that your role has become more complex. It is critical that you and your development teams have the tools you need to automate key processes. Automation boosts productivity while also improving software security and quality.

  • MORE Developer Tools


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Address and mitigate risk so that you can ship quickly
  • Discuss the concept of defining intent through policy
  • Identify what sort of developer level techniques and practices can you adopt early on to be in a good position to maintain a secure application
  • Quickly identify which of your dependencies are direct or transitive
  • Describe how running scans will help you build and view an accurate bill of materials
