Top Stories from the Microsoft DevOps Community – 2020.03.20

Steven Murawski

Happy Friday everyone! The content parade continues this week with topics including:

  • database changes in the pipeline,
  • infrastructure as code,
  • security,
  • and automation of Azure DevOps itself.

I’m closing out the links with a bit of shameless self promotion about an upcoming webinar. Stay healthy, safe, and keep shipping!

Updating SQL Azure database using Visual Studio database project and Azure DevOps
Evolving your database with your application at speed can be tricky. Gunnar walks us through using Visual Studio database projects in Azure DevOps with SQL Azure.

Automate Azure DevOps code security analysis with the Microsoft Security Code Analysis extensions
Credentials in source code is something I’m much more aware of lately. I manage our team’s subscriptions. Any time credentials surface that target our subscriptions I get notified. Tobias introduces the Microsoft Security Code Analysis extension and how we can use it. I should advertise this more with my team, because accidents do happen and credentials end up in the craziest places.

Automating organization and project creation in Azure DevOps
I’ve also done a bit of automating the setup of Azure DevOps environments for things like the AIML50 session for Microsoft Ignite | The Tour. Tobias demonstrates how a bit of exploration of the Azure DevOps REST API can get you down the path of creating new organizations and projects.

Using Terraform Modules from Git in Azure DevOps
Sam highlights Azure Pipelines with one of my favorite topics – infrastructure as code – with one of the more popular open source tools out there, Terraform.

How to deploy a Windows Virtual Desktop host pool using Infrastructure as code from Azure DevOps
I have to say, I love this post. Seeing infrastructure as code brought to creating Virtual Deskop hosts is awesome. Thanks Tom!

Webinar – REST API Security By Design with Azure Pipelines
The folks over at 42Crunch (and I) will be talking about shifting left on API security and bringing build-time light to this murky problem.
