Join us at #MSCreate: DevOps on @LearnTV October 21, 2021
Microsoft’s Donovan Brown defines DevOps as, “the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to our end users.” Microsoft Create is back again and by popular demand, we are going to talk about everything DevOps. Join us at “Create: DevOps” as we discuss automation, cloud-native, infrastructure as code, and security.
DevOps Community Experts
I’ll be hosting “Create: DevOps” on Microsoft Learn TV on October 21. 2021 at 9 AM PT. I’ll be joined by Steven Murawski as we welcome presentations from some amazing speakers from across DevOps. We’ll have expert community leaders like Donovan Brown, Martin Woodward, Quintessence Anx, April Edwards, Alex Hidalgo, and Kat Cosgrove speaking about subjects that make up five key pillars of DevOps. We’ll cover subjects such as culture shift, implementation of automation, cloud native applications, security, and a panel on observability.
Together with our community speakers, we share with you how to break down the silos of development and operations teams with the tools and processes that set them up for success. DevOps is more than just CI/CD, it’s about cultural shifts within your organization.
DevOps: A Cultural Shift
DevOps looks to bring people together in IT organizations through shared goals, increased collaboration, and focus on improvement. While technology plays a key role in DevOps by implementing tools for automation, time management, and communication, ultimately a cultural shift within organizations is critical for success.
DevOps is a strategy that’s been proven to work. As per the 2019 DevOps Research and Assessment report, high-performing teams using DevOps see 208x more frequent deployments, 106x faster from commit to deploy, 7x lower change failure rate, and a much faster incident recovery. This all leads to greater reliability of our systems.
You’ll also get a chance to take part in a hands-on lab that provides an introductory look at some of the tools that give teams ways to automate and deploy their applications and infrastructure. Our team will be showing you how to deploy an Azure Kubernetes Cluster with the help of Infrastructure as Code tool Bicep and GitHub Actions. We’ll also explain how to create a more secure environment in sharing sensitive information by utilizing Azure Key Vault. This workshop is geared toward those just getting started with DevOps tooling.
Steven Murawski, Marcus Felling, and I will demonstrate how to implement a fully automated deployment using CI/CD methodology powered by GitHub Actions. Let’s reduce our manual work and automate all the things!
Get even more from this Create: DevOps event!
Earn an Azure Hero Builder Badge
Both Bicep and GitHub actions are great tools to help automate your infrastructure deployments on Azure. Be sure to stay with us till the end of the Workshop and learn how to automate deploying a Bicep file to Azure to earn an Azure Hero Builder Badge.
We are always working to empower technical practitioners of all backgrounds. Microsoft created Azure Heroes to inspire developers to learn, coach, and build on Azure and promote a healthy, inclusive community. Earn yours while at Create: DevOps and show the world how much you’d like to give to the community.
Plant a tree when you join Create: DevOps and complete a Learn Module
Create cultural shifts through DevOps while impacting the planet with Ecosia. When you join Create: DevOps and complete one of the Microsoft Learn modules, we will plant a tree on your behalf. Our goal through this event is to plant over 1,440 new trees. Help restore the environment and communities all around the world. Learn more about our initiative here. Certificates will be issued after completion of Learn Module.
Microsoft Learn is one of the best places to get free technical and conceptual training on subjects related to DevOps. You’ll be able to educate yourself on the latest Azure products, methods of implementation, and even have a little fun by earning experience points. Be a level ten wizard! Challenge your friends!
