Azure DevOps Explained

Developing applications for the cloud involves changing development methodologies and procedures. Continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) processes are a must today, but are often difficult to implement and adopt. Azure DevOps is Microsoft Azure’s cloud service which enhances your application development life cycle and enables DevOps capabilities.

Starting with a comprehensive product overview, this book helps you to understand Azure DevOps and apply DevOps techniques to your development projects. You’ll find out how to adopt DevOps techniques for your development processes by using inbuilt Azure DevOps tools. Through the course of this book, you’ll also discover how to manage a project with the help of project management techniques such as Agile or Scrum, and then progress toward development aspects such as source code management, build pipelines, code testing and artifacts, release pipelines, and GitHub integration. While you learn to implement DevOps practices, this book will also provide you with real-world examples and scenarios of DevOps adoption.

By the end of this DevOps book, you will have learned how to adopt and implement Azure DevOps features in your real-world development processes.
