English | ISBN: 1484259017 | 2020 | 216 Pages | EPUB, PDF | 11 MB

Build, package, and deploy software projects, developed with any language targeting any platform, using Azure pipelines.
The book starts with an overview of CI/CD and the need for software delivery automation. It further delves into the basic concepts of Azure pipelines followed by a hands-on guide to setting up agents on all platforms enabling software development in any language. Moving forward, you will learn to set up a pipeline using the classic Visual Editor using PowerShell scripts, a REST API, building edit history, retention, and much more. You’ll work with artifact feeds to store deployment packages and consume them in a build. As part of the discussion you’ll see the implementation and usage of YAML (Yet Another Markup Language) build pipelines. You will then create Azure release pipelines in DevOps and develop extensions for Azure pipelines. Finally, you will learn various strategies and patterns for developing pipelines and go through some sample lessons on building and deploying pipelines.
After reading Hands-on Azure Pipelines, you will be able to combine CI and CD to constantly and consistently test and build your code and ship it to any target.
