Citizens increasingly expect higher performance and quality of government services and applications – putting developers on the hook to deliver new, secure capabilities to their agencies faster than ever. To keep pace, agencies can implement DevSecOps– a methodology that leverages agile principles, automation and integrates security from the start.

To hear how to realize DevSecOps in government, we invite you to RSVP and join the Microsoft Azure Government DC user community for this event.

During this meetup, which is free and open to the public, you’ll hear from government and industry experts who will:
=>Discuss benefits of DevSecOps and how it’s being used in government
=>Share challenges and best practices for successfully implementing a DevSecOps methodology
=>Demonstrate various DevSecOps tools and techniques for agencies
