DevOps using Visual Studio 2015 training in full swing

Some of the most exciting new features to arrive in Visual Studio Team Services and TFS 2015 have been the completely new Build system and the new Release Management capabilities built using the same technology. These are critical pieces to the DevOps puzzle for teams using VSTS or TFS as their ALM suite of choice.

To help educate teams on how to adopt DevOps best practices using Visual Studio, I have written a course focused specifically on this outcome.  The new 3-day DevOps using Visual Studio TFS 2015 course has already been delivered several times and has received very positive feedback.

We usually use electronic manuals where possible but for a client in Virginia this week, they requested printed hardcopy manuals. It was the first time I had the chance to “see” all my hard work in hard copy.

This is what 603 pages of DevOps knowledge and hands on exercises looks like

 

If this course is something you or your team may benefit from, there are scheduled courses coming up in the United States and Australia over the coming months. You can also just AskShane about onsite training or customised versions of the course.

There are two courses you may want to consider.

1. DevOps using Visual Studio TFS 2015 (3-day course)

2. Build and Release Management using TFS 2015 (2-day course which is a subset of the 3-day DevOps)
