Description
  • Get hands-on experience working as a team in an Azure DevOps environment.
  • Learn to configure Azure DevOps for product development.
  • Practice creating and managing Azure Pipeline builds, as well as installing and configuring Azure Pipeline agents.
  • Understand the value of building a culture of learning and improvement

This course provides students with the DevOps principles and related hands-on practices to work better as a team, scale their agility, share and integrate their work, and deliver working software continuously in order to enable faster delivery of value and receive early and valuable feedback. Utilizing more than 50 hands-on activities, students work as a team, a pair, or individually using the tools that reinforce the DevOps principles and practices they are learning. Students will self-organize into cross-functional, collocated teams and work collaboratively on a case study using a shared Azure DevOps environment. All code will be provided.

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for experienced software development professionals who want to learn about DevOps in order to achieve Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Feedback, and Continuous Learning in a technical value stream as supported by Azure DevOps Services, Visual Studio, and Azure in order to continually deliver working software at scale. Students will also install and evaluate several extensions from the Azure DevOps Marketplace. Those who use Azure DevOps Server (Team Foundation Server) will also benefit from this course. Attendees should be familiar with C#, Visual Studio, Scrum, and have basic experience with Azure DevOps Services or Azure DevOps Server.
