Top Stories from the Microsoft DevOps Community – 2020.01.24

Sasha Rosenbaum

This week was the week of the first-ever DeliveryConf event, where we tried a new format aimed to encourage the audience participation, and the sharing of insights between professionals working with different technologies in the same space. We’ve learned a lot!

The theme of this week’s community round-up is “even the best tools won’t deliver value if they aren’t well documented”. Reading the blogs, I am certainly happy that our documentation is open-source, and that our community contributes both to the official docs, and to the wealth of the external content on Azure DevOps usage!

Azure Repos Policy Settings Issue
