Automated pipelines have grown a lot in popularity over the last few years. But taking the actual step to continuous delivery to production for many teams is still a bridge too far. Complex infrastructure like Kubernetes has a lot of features of making continuous delivery possible for teams but they come with a really high learning curve and add a lot of complexity that most teams don't actually need.

In this talk, Geert will explain how you could take advantage of continuous delivery practices like blue/green deployments, feature flagging or canary releases using Azure Paas services such as Azure Web Apps in combination with GitHub Actions or Azure DevOps. Join this talk for practical examples and that you can start using tomorrow on your own projects so increase the quality and speed of your software delivery process.

You will learn:

  • Splitting deploy/release with Azure Paas
  • Safe releasing and fast feedback cycles
  • How to do real CICD with Azure Paas
