A closer look into the new Build and Release Management

With the release of TFS 2015 the new Build system was introduced. The changes compared to the old XAML build system are spectacular. It is now cross-platform, fast, light weight and task based.

The same concepts apply to the new Release Management tooling that is available in Visual Studio Team Services and that will eventually flow in to the on-premise product.

In this session we take a close look into the new build ad release system and talk about how you can benefit from them in your daily workflow. Even if you are not a Microsoft Developer!

Hands-On with Build and Release Management

In this hands-on we will work in groups to get a build and release pipeline up and running. We will cover it all. Building an App, Creating VM's in Azure, deploying a website and database, running some UI tests and set up roles and approval in our pipeline.

Make sure you bring:

* A laptop with Visual Studio (2015 preferred)

* A VSTS account

* An Azure (trial) subscription

See you soon !
