One of the main prerequisites for achieving an optimized delivery of value to end users is the implementation of an automated delivery pipeline. Quick and easy “push-button” deliveries enabled by such a pipeline are a guarantee for a robust and consistent release process which leads your team towards the successful implementation of baseline DevOps practices. Using the Build and Release Management toolsets provided by Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server you can build traceable automated delivery processes consisting of build, deployment, testing and verification steps that progressively deliver your software packages through a series of stages and environments from development all the way to production. With their lightweight componentization, containers in general and Docker in particular are arising as the supplementary technology that will further optimize practices in many areas necessary for the success in DevOps. Using containers, Developers and Testers can easily create and work with development and test environments knowing that very similar environments are used in production. IT operations has no doubts about what has to be delivered, because self-sufficient containers have been already prepared and tested. Applications can be easily scaled and it is easy to adapt to increased demands by adding more containers. This session will explain and demo both Release Management and Docker concepts. We will demonstrate how developers can benefit from Docker on their workstations, and discuss the details of Release Management using an example of a multiple staged automated delivery pipeline for a dockerized demo application running in Azure. Join us to see how Release Management and containers can help you succeed in DevOps and frequently deliver high quality software with ease.
