Continuous Delivery in Practice: A Hands-On DevOps Workshop

What is continuous deployment? How does it differ from continuous integration and continuous delivery? Every company thinks they want CI/CD, but few teams have experience in knowing what that means and how to build it out. Join Janna and Melissa as they walk through building your own build pipeline using GitHub Actions, Docker, and Azure to continuously deploy to production. They will walk you through some of the basics of Git, Docker, and YAML to create build pipelines that run test automation and deploy an application. These tools and techniques will help reduce debugging differences between your development environment and a production server. Creating your own pipeline will allow you to optimize and debug your test automation without disrupting your team’s build pipeline. Learn from practical, real-world examples about how testing practices and pipelines can be streamlined to take advantage of the ad-hoc world of containerization. Come away with a real DevOps build,test, and deployment plan that can reduce your cycle times by an order of magnitude while increasing overall product quality.
