May 9, 2018 · Toronto, Canada

When: May 9th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm

Where: Avanade Canada: 200 Wellington St W, 10th Floor, Toronto, ON M5V 3C7

Topic: DevOps Projects Demystified

This meeting will be a two part meeting. First part will be a discussion on DevOps projects. What DevOps project is? Is the DevOps project even a real thing or is just a bunch of fancy words? If it's real, how can it help you be more successful in today's IT world that changes so fast now? How to run DevOps projects? How not to run them? This should be an interesting discussions with a lot of real life DevOps war stories...
The second part of the meeting will be more technical and it will be dedicated to a new DevOps Projects tool in Microsoft Azure that lets developers configure a DevOps pipeline and connect it to the cloud with no prior knowledge of how to do so.

The Azure DevOps Project presents a simplified experience which creates Azure resources and sets up a continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipeline for when you are developing a .NET, Java, Node, PHP, or a Python app, or whether you are targeting app services, virtual machines, or containers in the cloud using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) behind the scenes. DevOps Projects help you get up and running with a new app and a full DevOps pipeline in just a few minutes and set you up with everything you need for developing, deploying, and monitoring your app. Create your application and release pipeline on any Azure service in just three steps—simply select an application language, a runtime, and an Azure service. Start small and scale up as needed using Azure DevOps Projects.
