Continuous Delivery 3.0 on the Microsoft Stack

Agile and Scrum radically changed software development, shifting the source of production bottlenecks from development teams to delivery. Shipping the "done" increment on demand is the solution. But a fully-optimized continuous delivery strategy requires rethinking and reinventing both your software development and application lifecycle management (ALM) processes. This two-day training course taught in Dutch and English covers everything you need to know to do continuous delivery the right way. Learn how to build and set up a continuous delivery strategy using Visual Studio Team Services to shape your pipeline. State-of-the-art tooling, technology and concepts, like distributed version control, continuous integration, release pipelines, automated testing and container technology, all come into play.
"The flow of the training was very good. Everytime something new was learned it was applied on top of something that was previously learned. This made for a pleasent learningcurve for an otherwise hefty topic." - CRM / BI Consultant
