DevOps with VSTS and Donovan Brown + guests

Jun 22, 2017 · Kongens Lyngby, Denmark

We are very excited to have Donovan Brown (Principal DevOps Program Manager for Microsoft) aka Mr.Black Shirt visit Copenhagen on his European tour in June for this half a day of DevOps in collaboration with Microsoft Denmark.

We also invited two local developers who uses Visual Studio Team Services to share their knowledge, so we'll have a total of 4 talks during this afternoon in June.

Zero to DevOps / Donovan Brown (Microsoft)

DevOps is about people, process and products. Getting it all right requires effort but the benefits to your organization and customers can be huge. In this demo-heavy session, Donovan Brown will show you how to go from “zero to DevOps” like a pro. Starting from just a blank desktop, he will create a new team project and a complete pipeline. He will also deploy an ASP.NET MVC application into Azure all live and hands on.

Building and deploying .NET apps as Containers with VSTS / Jeppe Andersen (Momondo)

Since the launch of .NET Core it has been possible to deploy and run .NET applications as containers on Linux. With the recent release of Windows Server 2016, the same benefits are available on the Windows platform.This talk will give an introduction to deploying server-side .NET applications as containers. We look into why it is interesting for .NET developers, and how to get started building containers for Windows Server 2016 with Visual Studio Team Services.

Infrastructure as VSTS tasks / Poul Sørensen (Ascend)

Visual Studio Team Services is very extensible and being able to create custom tasks makes it very powerful and flexible. In this talk Poul will show how he uses VSTS to solve problems at work and how he is using Tasks for a variety of different purposes.
We will take a look at Infrastucture as VSTS tasks: From an ARM template we will auto generate a VSTS Task that has input fields to help deploy infrastructure in VSTS Release Management or VSTS Builds.

We will also dive into the CI and CD setup for delivering products at Ascend, which involves a fair amount of smaller and larger libraries built with typescript.

Microsoft’s Agile Transformation Story / Donovan Brown (Microsoft)

Microsoft reduced its delivery cadence from three years to three weeks.  Microsoft Senior DevOps Program Manager Donovan Brown will discuss how Microsoft manages large, globally distributed Scrum teams to enable DevOps for Team Services and TFS.

Join us at Microsoft's offices in Lyngby and prepare to 'Rub DevOps on it'.
June 22th, put it in your calendar!
