Azure DevOps Services is Microsoft’s suite of cloud-based tools for planning, testing and shipping applications, with the aim being to support “any language and any platform”. Out of the box you get Azure Repos for version control, Azure Boards for work planning and tracking, Azure Pipelines for CI/CD, Azure Test for managing manual and automated testing and Azure Artifacts for hosting and sharing packages. With a pedigree that stretches as far back as 2006 with the release of Visual Studio 2005 Team System followed by Team Foundation Server in 2010 and Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) in 2015, the breadth and depth of features in Azure DevOps Services is truly staggering.
At DevOpsGroup we understand that for teams new to Azure DevOps (and also for many teams that have previously used TFS or VSTS) it can be a real challenge to devise and implement a strategy for building an end-to-end software delivery pipeline that aims to deliver software faster and with greater quality. To assist with meeting this challenge we have developed our Azure DevOps Services Hands-on Labs training course. Designed and delivered by DevOpsGroup Consultants and Engineers who have from-the-trenches experience of developing software delivery pipelines with Azure DevOps and its predecessors, the course gives candidates hands-on experience of developing a real-world example of a software delivery pipeline in a classroom setting where the group discussions that take place are as valued as the practical work itself.
A two-day 101 event comprising 10 labs that cover configuring Azure DevOps and creating and using a software delivery pipeline for an example ASP.NET Core website that is deployed to an Azure App Service. Candidates will learn how to:
Additional specialist Labs include:
This course is relevant to anyone that needs to understand how to use Azure DevOps Services to create software delivery pipelines to deliver software faster and with higher quality. This includes engineers who will work with Azure DevOps Services on a daily basis as well as technical managers and architects who are responsible for commissioning software delivery pipelines with Azure DevOps Services. The course is also relevant to those using the on-premises version of Azure DevOps Services (Azure DevOps Server) although some of the features demonstrated in the course may not be immediately available in that version.
