Session: From 0 to DevOps

DevOps is all about bringing people, processes and tools closer together in order for us to deliver better software faster and with improved quality. But what does that really mean? And how do you get started?

In this session we will look DevOps from a developer’s perspective. We will start from 0 and go through key DevOps principles that will help you transform the way you develop and operate software. In order to increase the release frequency you will need to re-design your application to be more deployment friendly. We will look at ideas that help you not only release often but also get you to near-zero downtime during deployment by implementing deployment patterns into the application.

With a tool-chain based on Visual Studio Team Services and Azure you will learn how to implement a DevOps pipeline that applies principles such as continuous integration, continuous delivery and continuous learning.
