Course description

Implementing Azure Devops Pipelines

There are many ways to implement DevOps practices like continuous integration, continuous delivery, and infrastructure as code. But Azure has a service offering called Azure DevOps that integrates well not just with Azure, but with other tools, public clouds, and even private clouds.

In this hands-on boot camp, you will build a truly practical and useful End-to-End DevOps Pipeline to create, test and deploy Chef Cookbooks through CI/CD (Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment) using Azure Repos and Azure Pipelines. Guided by an experienced DevOps practitioner, you will automate an entire End-To-End CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment) Pipeline using Azure Repos, Chef and Azure Pipelines and maintain code using Git and Azure Repos. You will also create, test and deploy Chef cookbooks through an Azure Pipelines CI/CD pipeline, including Code Linting, and Testing with Inspec and Test Kitchen.
