This 3-day course aims to help you achieve some of the key goals of DevOps namely reducing friction, increasing velocity and increasing value to your customers.

About this course:

The course starts by introducing DevOps and the Visual Studio 2015 product family. We'll look at how you can reduce lead time using the Agile planning tools in Visual Studio with still aligning with Enterprise goals.

Next we’ll look at how a number of features in Visual Studio 2015 including Code Clone Analysis, CodeLens and Code Maps can help you reduce technical debt and thereby help increase team productivity. The course then focuses on the new scriptable, cross-platform build system introduced in TFS 2015 and how to use it. We briefly examine the current version of Release Management for Visual Studio 2015 before deep diving into Release Management vNext. Release Management vNext is in Visual Studio Team Services and TFS 2015 Update 2. The course then looks at the benefits of PowerShell and the use of Desired State Configuration (DSC) to configure the machines where you’ll deploy your application components. The final modules of the course look at Application Insights and how you can monitor your application. This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you're ready to use the tools on your return to your workplace.

The average salary for TFS Administrator is $71,885 per year.
