Azure Pipelines from Scratch with Jimmy Bogard

With the release of Azure DevOps and Azure Pipelines, it’s easier than ever to get up and running with a full continuous integration and delivery solution. For simple applications, it’s just a few clicks to get up and going. But what about more complicated scenarios, where we have multiple environments and databases to worry about? In this session, we’ll look at modern CI/CD practices and how to implement them with Azure Pipelines. We’ll take a real application – not just “Hello World” or “Todo”, and build out the entire build and deploy pipeline from scratch. We’ll explore environments, database migrations, triggers, and more.

Build more agreeable microservices with Yogi Aradhye

The industry has proven the value of moving to microservices, but this has introduced new sets of problems. Managing contracts between services is one of them: If done incorrectly, it can push us towards more orchestration than choreography. That could introduce more maintenance problems and increase your total cost of ownership. There are ample ways to solve this problem, but the tools are too tied to transports, deserialization mechanisms, and opinions. This complicates things unnecessarily. In this talk, we dig into the details of this problem and reveal practical solutions for moving towards choreography.
