Azure DevOps Projects

I will be speaking at Global Azure Bootcamp Toronto (well, Mississauga to be exact) on April 21st, 2018. The topic will be DevOps Projects. Azure DevOps Projects. That thing that makes it a lot easier to deploy to Azure through VSTS. Should be fun. Go ahead and register at See you there.

I thought I'd share the description:

IT world changes fast. Very fast. But Azure, and cloud in general, moves even faster. A lot faster. This requires learning latest technologies, using them in your product and deploying at a faster pace. With digital transformation efforts in full swing across enterprises in nearly every industry, developers are driven harder than ever to speed up application releases. In the process, they also want to ensure quality and security and to manage these apps more efficiently. This is where DevOps becomes critical and where a simplified way to get started with DevOps could be useful. Microsoft's new Azure DevOps Projects tool lets developers configure a DevOps pipeline and connect it to the cloud with no prior knowledge of how to do so.

The Azure DevOps Project presents a simplified experience which creates Azure resources and sets up a continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipeline for when you are developing a .NET, Java, Node, PHP, or a Python app, or whether you are targeting app services, virtual machines, or containers in Azure using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) behind the scenes. DevOps Projects help you get up and running with a new app and a full DevOps pipeline in just a few minutes. Azure DevOps Project helps you launch an app on an Azure App Service of your choice in a few quick steps and set you up with everything you need for developing, deploying, and monitoring your app. Creating a DevOps Project provisions Azure resources and comes with a Git code repository, Application Insights integration and a continuous delivery pipeline setup to deploy to Azure. The DevOps Project dashboard lets you monitor code commits, builds and, deployments, from a single view in the Azure portal.

Create your application and release pipeline on any Azure service in just three steps—simply select an application language, a runtime, and an Azure service. Start small and scale up as needed using Azure DevOps Projects.
