Top Stories from the Microsoft DevOps Community – 2019.12.06
This week, the emerging theme of the community posts is the cross-platform, cross-cloud, extensible nature of Azure DevOps. Azure DevOps is not just a product, but a platform, enabling the community to expand and improve on our engineering efforts to support the growing variety of technologies around the world.
Configure CI/CD in Azure DevOps
If you aren’t familiar with the Azure DevOps Project, it is an Azure resource that lets you deploy and configure a sample app to an Azure environment, and wire up CI/CD for it in Azure DevOps. The Azure DevOps Project supports multiple types of technologies and environments, making it easy to create a deployment prototype that you can use as a reference. In this post, Prakash Kumar shares a detailed walkthrough of configuring a Build and Release for a .NET Core app, using the Azure DevOps Project.
Azure DevOps and Multi-Cloud – Deploying .NET Core Apps in AWS and Azure using Azure DevOps
In this post, Abhijit Jana also starts with the Azure DevOps Project, but takes it a step further. In addition to deploying the .NET Core web app into Azure, Abhijit also deploys it to AWS Elastic Beanstalk, both using Azure DevOps. Now we have a multi-cloud solution!
How to build and sign your iOS application using Azure DevOps
In addition to being cross-cloud, Azure DevOps is also cross-platform! In this post, Damien Aicheh shows us an Azure Pipeline for building and signing your iOS application, producing a signed ipa. Thank you Damien!
Using Azure Pipelines to publish the NuGet package from GitHub repo
Of course, not all code is immediately deployed as an app – web, mobile or otherwise. In this blog, Xiaodi Yan shows us how to create an Azure YAML pipeline that publishes a NuGet package implementing a messenger component for WPF and Xamarin. Great work!
Introduction to the Red Hat OpenShift deployment extension for Microsoft Azure DevOps
And, of course, the true reason we can support so many languages, platforms and environments is that we work closely with our partners to extend the ecosystem. In this post, Luca Stocchi introduces us to the new version of the Azure DevOps extension for Red Hat OpenShift. With this extension, you can deploy to any OpenShift cluster from Azure DevOps. And the extension is open source, so you can contribute to the effort. Thanks for the hard work, Luca!
