#MSBuild 2017 Revisited: ALM & DevOps

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Channel 9.

For the next couple months we're going to revisit Build 2017, each post focusing on different aspects and technologies presented. Not every session will be listed, just a select set, hopefully enough to wet your appetite. All the on-demand sessions can be found and the Channel 9 Build event site.

Hard to cover a "developer" focused event without covering Application Lifecycle Management and DevOps. Of the 32'ish related sessions here's a select 20 sessions.
