I am so excited to be speaking at TechEd Europe 2014. Come check out the following sessions:
DEV-B310 A Practical View of Release Management for Visual Studio 2013
Primary Speaker(s): Claude Remillard, Donovan Brown
This session demos using Desired State Configuration (DSC) with Release Management for Visual Studio 2013 to tackle real-world deployment challenges. We start by presenting an overview of the key concepts, architecture, and configuration of the various components. We discuss the out-of-the box deployment actions available to compose automations for common deployment scenarios and how to use extensibility to cover the not-so-common scenarios. In more detail, we discuss adding custom DSC resources, how to trigger release as part of a build and how to leverage logs to diagnose failed releases. These are presented through specific scenarios encountered in the field.
DEV-B333 Cross-Platform Continuous Delivery with Release Management for Visual Studio 2013
Primary Speaker(s): Donovan Brown
With Release Management you can achieve true continuous delivery on any platform. This session demos how to use Release Management for continuous delivery in Cross-Platform environments including Windows and Linux. We will cover how to leverage Desired State Configuration (DSC) and Chef integration to create a release pipeline for both Windows and Linux.
