I thought that today it would be prudent of me to document my learnings in summary form when it comes to the set of tooling available to us via Azure DevOps. Off the back of the Azure DevOps Open Hack and the forthcoming AZ-400 exam here is a quick summary of what Azure DevOps is all about!

Over the past few weeks I have had the chance to roll my sleeves up and look at what CI/CD could mean for the control and audit capabilities of deploying Infrastructure as Code such as Terraform within a CI/CD pipeline and what this might mean for my customers.
The ability to wrap a set of tooling such as Azure DevOps around a current packaged delivery of services into Azure means that I can seamlessly pass this onto our Managed services capability, or simply hand over the pipeline support to my customer directly. Hopefully convincing them at the same time that DevOps is the way forward to manage their infrastructure deployment and configuration requirements!
I am really excited to be using these technologies more and more now and can’t wait to start making some interesting and creative solutions available via this methodology!
My Main ReadMe Page is all set up with a bit about me!
The guys at 100DaysofCloud have set up the GitHub repo to be cloned and also have a great repo containing ideas and areas to collaborate on: https://github.com/100DaysOfCloud/100DaysOfCloudIdeas
My Github Journey tracker can be found here: https://github.com/jonnychipz/100DaysOfCloud
Please Watch/Star my repo and feel free to comment of contribute to anything I push! I really look forward to hearing from anyone who is going to jump on the journey around the same time as me! Lets see where I get to in 100 days!
I would encourage others to jump on this journey, I’m not sure that I will be able to commit every day for 100 days, but as long as I can complete 100 days that will be great!
