Microsoft’s Enterprise Transformation

DevOps is the union of people, process and products that enable continuous delivery of value to our end users. This ability is vital in today’s world, but it’s not easy to do.

We touch on modern technologies and techniques. From Infrastructure as Code to setting up DNS. From web front ends, to deploying databases. From API’s hosted in Kubernetes clusters all he way to mobile apps. And we do everything from within our pipelines. With the right tooling, anything is possible. And in this session, you will see all this happen live with DevOps best practices including IaC, Database DevOps, Security, Quality and even disaster recovery!
