Already know your way around PowerShell? Great! This session will show you how to collaborate with members of your team more effectively. During this session, we will review the fundamental principles of source control, and how they can add value to system administration/configuration efforts. You will learn how to configure Azure DevOps so that it can be leveraged in combination with Visual Studio Code (VSC) to create the ultimate PowerShell development platform for any administrator. We will also share a script that configures the application and user settings for integration between Azure DevOps, VSC, and PowerShell. At the end of the session, you should be:
---Familiar with how you can use Azure DevOps as a code/script repository, and VSC as an integrated development environment (IDE)
---Knowledgeable of how to create feature branches, commits, pull requests, and review policies
---Conversant in licensing implications with Azure DevOps for large team sizes
