It's the 'DevOps' June :-) We're excited to have Sam Guckenheimer from Microsoft Visual Studio team in Redmond for this meetup.

This is the story of transforming Microsoft to One Engineering System with a globally distributed 24x7x365 service on the public cloud. We’ll show you round the system that handles the load of some of the most demanding engineering teams in the world and share some stories about how they got there.

This is a seven-year story of moving to Cloud-First Development and modern DevOps practices, supporting an internal engineering organization of 65,000, while growing both the SaaS and traditional software business. The organizational and engineering practices include:
• agile project management, scheduling, teaming, and development
• enterprise git to enable distributed version control at scale
• modern release pipeline with automated testing, continuous integration and continuous deployment
• live site quality of service and feature work in the same product backlog
• public cloud hosting for flexible infrastructure and global presence
• canary deployment across data centers
• feature flags to make dark launches and progressive experimentation possible
