Jeffrey Palermo’s new book .NET DevOps for Azure (Preview Edition) has been a culmination of a long-time vision, some key leadership, and a confluence of industry events.
During his 20+ year career, the author gained a passion for helping .Net DevOps engineers and DevOps services companies succeed, for making the complex simple, and for finding rules of thumb that would work for 80% of situations. With too many options in the software world and too many answers of “it depends”, the industry has been starved for the ability to do something “by the book.”
This book presents a scenario where a .NET developer can say “I’m doing Azure and .Net DevOps by the book.” In this manner, one would know what models and patterns were in play and what to expect from said environment.
The examples largely use Visual Studio 2019 preview edition. However, the code and the Azure DevOps Services pipeline function with .NET Core 2.2 and can be used to implement applications.
The example configuration used throughout this book can be leveraged through a public project and source code repository online.
