The project at a glance

#SmartDevOps is an E+ Sector Skills Alliance which will define and develop the skills needed in an emerging and very dynamic sector: Smart Cities. The project addresses the shortage of digital and transferrable skills in municipalities. It will support people working in the smart cities sector (ICT project managers; programmers, technical writers, web designers, system administrators, technicians) in their professional development by training them to apply DevOps, an approach combining the “development” and “operations” phases. This will raise the quality of e-services, helping those Cities become truly IT sustainable while fulfilling their scope to “connect, protect, & enhance the lives of their citizens via digital technology.
