Course Description

DevOps is an abbreviation for a modern methodology that describe practices and technologies (automated and manual) that support tight integration between the application development and production (including testing and quality) environments. By integrating the traditional isolated environments, the ALM process supports an open communications methodology, and allows for controlled automated processes within the entire application lifetime. In this course, you will learn that Visual Studio is designed around the DevOps idea, and provides a number of supporting components and methods to promote controlled automation, monitoring, and improved communication within the ALM process. You will also learn about the available tools and techniques within Visual Studio that support DevOps.
