Your code compiles. Your unit tests pass. Your website works on localhost. But “It works on my machine” does not get your site deployed to your production environment. Azure DevOps can handle much of the process of between localhost and production.

Continuous Integration can build and test your application, release workflows can automate your deployments to test and production environments, and everything can be customized to employ manual interaction and gatekeeping for quality control and human oversight. Getting your application to production does not need to be an invasive, manual process. Learn to use the strength of Azure DevOps to manage your path to Production.
