Wat we doen


The speakers – Doru Dan, Cristian Stroe and Sjors Meekels - will share insights on practices and demos of tools used in Agile projects.

Sjors, our guest speaker, will kick off the session by highlighting some interesting capabilities of VSTS supporting “the Agile way of working” that most organizations have embraced. By reflecting on well-known tools like Jira, participants should be able to quickly understand the benefits of using VSTS in a daily programming routine.
Cristi & Doru will then talk more about the technology enabling “the Agile way of working”.
When it comes to Continous Integration/Continuous Delivery, there’s a myriad of tools available out there, but only few end-to-end solutions really work together seamlessly.
Our speakers will focus on “a match made in heaven” (or clouds): Microsoft VSTS (aka TFS in the Cloud) and Azure.
They will be introducing a practical guide on how to configure CI/CD tooling for a .Net application hosted in Azure.

Note: all sessions will be held in English
