Azure DevOps Terraform Trouble
Simon Timms was staying bleeding edge and running the
latest version of Terraform in his Azure DevOps builds. And unfortunately, he noticed an incompatibility between Terraform 12 and his Azure DevOps tasks. It’s a good reminder to stay on a known-good version, and shows you how to stay on that particular release.
Another gem of Azure DevOps, multi-stage pipelines
I’m super excited about the new multi-stage pipeline functionality in Azure Pipelines, because it lets me script my release pipeline in YAML. Gian Maria Ricci is excited as well, and explains how the new multi-stage pipeline functionality works.
Build and Deploy a Node.js Application into Azure Web Apps Using Azure DevOps

As always, if you’ve written an article about Azure DevOps or find some great content about DevOps on Azure then let me know! I’m @ethomson on Twitter.
