Rapidly changing technology trends and customer expectations drive the need for setting up mechanisms that enable frequent, easy and sustainable deliveries. With automated Build and Release Management pipelines provided by Visual Studio Team Service and Team Foundation Server you can easily achieve such practices in your development process. In this session you can learn how to build and release your app, your way, for your platforms, no matter the languages and tools you use along the way. We will first demonstrate the creation of custom automated build workflows where you will see how easy it is to create, manage and customize your build process, run tests and publish build results. Then we will move on to setting up release definitions that enable automated or semi-automated deployment pipelines to all your staging environments from development to production with built-in support for manual approvals. We will show that both systems are fully extensible and allow you to combine built-in open-sourced tasks for building, packaging, delivery and testing with calls to scripting tools as well as your own custom modules. You will be thrilled with the lightweight, web-based authoring environment, real-time visibility of logs and the support for auditing and analytics. This deep insight into the infrastructure and capabilities of Visual Studio Team Service and Team Foundation Server Build and Release Management systems will help you to easily jump start successful DevOps practices in your own environment.
