Description

Team Foundation Server 2015 and Visual Studio Team Services offer a completely redeveloped build system, and Microsoft is in the process of rolling out a new system for Release Management.

This 2-day course focuses on building and releasing .NET applications using these new systems. It focuses on the new scriptable, cross-platform build system introduced in TFS 2015 and how to use it. The course briefly looks at the current version of Release Management for Visual Studio 2015, but then deep dives into Release Management vNext. Release Management vNext is currently in preview in Visual Studio Team Services and in TFS 2015 Update 2.

If you are eager to learn how to implement DevOps practices designed to streamline your build and release processes using TFS or VSTS, this is the course for you.

The content in this course is a subset of our 3-day “DevOps using Visual Studio 2015” course.

This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you’re ready to use the tools upon returning to your workplace.
