DevOps is the union of people, process and products that enable continuous delivery of value to our end users. This ability is vital in today's world, but it is not easy to do. Learn how Microsoft transformed their entire company from a waterfall-oriented business--delivering new versions once every 3 years--to delivering new features every 3 weeks, with multiple bug fixes and patches deploying daily. This journey wasn't a smooth one. Nor was it easy. But you can learn from our mistakes. See what we have identified as best practices and what worked for us in this exciting new world.
