Spring Into DevOps on April 12th in Chicago with Donovan Brown

by Angela 5. April 2017 18:59
 

DevOps is about people, process and products. Getting it all right requires effort but the benefits to your organization and customers can be huge. Microsoft has a fantastic set of products that can adapt to any language on any platform. 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. Why is DevOps one of the hottest topics? Because it hurts the most. Luckily, Donovan's unofficial tag line is #RubDevOpsOnIt and he's here to make it all better.

This is going to be an action packed event, and a rare opportunity to speak to the Principal DevOps Program Manager at Microsoft himself. So come ready to drink from the DevOps firehose!

Agenda for Wed, April 12, 2017

6:00pm: Grab dinner and a seat!

6:30pm: The DevOps show begins
