Happy Friday! We’ve made it to the end of April (next week’s post is May 1st!). It hasn’t been the easiest week, but thanks to this community I have some great reading for the weekend. From deciding what build pipeline to create to tackling problems like updating variables to troubleshooting hung builds or misplaced build artifacts to getting ready to deploy containerized applications, there is a little something for everyone here.
