Andreas (aka Andi) Grabner and Brian Wilson are veterans of the digital performance world. Combined they have seen too many applications not scaling and performing up to expectations. With more rapid deployment models made possible through continuous delivery and a mentality shift sparked by DevOps they feel it’s time to share their stories. In each episode, they and their guests discuss different topics concerning performance, ranging from common performance problems for specific technology platforms to best practices in development, testing, deploying and monitoring software performance and user experience. Be prepared to learn a lot about metrics.
Andi & Brian both work at Dynatrace, where they get to witness more real-world customer performance issues than they can TPS report at.
Azure DevOps, formerly known as VSTS, is more than just a set of tools. But what is it exactly? How does it help enterprises to deploy better code faster? Does it only work for Azure or other platforms & clouds as well? How can it be extended or integrated into existing processes and tools?
Abel Wang, Sr Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft, is giving us a tour through Azure DevOps and how he has seen it implemented and integrated into existing enterprise DevOps tool landscapes. We briefly discussed the Unbreakable Delivery Pipeline for Azure DevOps that Abel helped implement and is now available on the Visual Studio Marketplace. So – give it a try and see for yourself what Abel and team has built!
Last but not least we also touched upon Azure DevOps for databases and how you to implement regression testing, continuous deployment and canary releases for database updates. Very intriguing topic that we are sure to cover in future sessions in more detail.
