Mathias Olausson

Applied DevOps for modern apps with containers and cloud

In this workshop you will learn how to build, deploy and test modern microservice applications using Azure DevOps (formerly VSTS), containers and Azure services.

The first half of the workshop will focus on how we can use containers to streamline the development and release process. You will learn fundamental concepts of container-based deployment as well as how to use infrastructure in Azure to host the containers in kubernetes.

In the second part of the workshop we shift focus and look at how we can orchestrate the release process. We will look at deployment to Azure in general as well as how to deploy containers using Azure DevOps pipelines. We will also dive into other important aspects of DevOps release management, including automated testing and telemetry.
