dc.description.abstract Teaching DevOps is challenging as it is inherently cross-functional between development and operations. This thesis presents an examination of a course and its development iterations in an attempt to find an approach that may be used in DevOps education in a higher education context. The course focuses on learning a tool in the DevOps toolchain, containerization with Docker, in a massively open online course (MOOC). By investigating a course during its design process and its attendees, challenges that students and course instructors faced are discussed. The primary source of information from students is a survey that students answered before and after participating in the course. The challenges of teaching DevOps practices vary from the teaching methods to types of exercises and level of industry imitation or abstraction. In comparison, students had fewer challenges than expected with the course contents. The survey results offered insight into the student experience concerning DevOps, unveiling a demand for both further development of the course as well as for new courses that link development and operations. en
