Today’s myth is that it’s hard to get started with Azure DevOps – but first let’s look at the ‘why?’. Maybe, as an organisation, you made the decision to embrace this tool, or you’ve been asked to explore it by your team. It could be for a whole manner of different reasons, so we’re going to look at some of the different use cases, and why it’s really good.

First of all, it’s any code, any platform. Azure DevOps can deploy to any cloud on-premise, and you can bring any code to our tooling. This means it’s not just for Windows developers, or .NET developers, but for everyone – be it multi-platform, open source, or your on-premise environment.

One thing it’s really great for is CICD – or Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery – and it does this with automation. So things like infrastructure code, using third-party tools like Terraform, or deploying ARM templates into Azure, can all be done automatically. You can even look at automating your actual code with your developers, automating it through our Azure pipelines.

In the video below, I walk you through how you can get started with Azure DevOps, and how easy it is to get started on your own DevOps journey.
