Microsoft’s journey to DevOps - Giles Davies
Session 1: Azure DevOps
Visual Studio Team Services has been rebranded to Azure DevOps. This session will look at why it’s been renamed (again) and what the impact is beyond the branding, including feature and licence changes (spoiler; no bad news). We’ll also step through using Azure DevOps to create a release pipeline and take a look at the new Azure DevOps projects as the fastest and easiest way to create new pipelines.
Session 2: Microsoft’s journey to DevOps
Microsoft has transformed from deploying releases on lengthy release cycle of years to daily and weekly releases. This has been through the adoption of first Agile and then DevOps practices and this session will summarise some of the key learnings that Microsoft has taken from this journey across technology, organisation and processes.
