Enterprise Development Streamlined in the Cloud

In this session we will look at how to rapidly deploy and setup an Enterprise system for development within Azure. We will demonstrate how to enable a team of developers to work with Azure DevTest Labs and automate deployment through Visual Studio Team Services’ Build service (CI/CD Pipeline). We will look at how one organization has gone from taking 3 weeks to set up a SharePoint development environment and reduce that time to just one hour using Azure DevTest Labs.

You will learn:

· The different options available for creating development environments in Azure.

· How to create consistent, repeatable development environments using Azure DevTest Labs.

· How to use Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) for development and deployment.

    Hi Patrick,  Do you have a deck or similar that would support this proposal?  Would be helpful in order for the committee to reach an informed decision. Thanks in advance!  Phillip

      Phillip, I have added a link to a deck that would be similar to the one for AgileDC. They are not going to be exactly the same, since the audience is not the same.
