This is NOT a session about MS DevOps tools. This is the story of how the Azure DevOps team transformed from shipping an on-premise server product every couple of years, to shipping a cloud service multiple times a day. In the process, almost everything about how this team of 800 people work has changed. We had to figure out how to do agile at scale, how to transform into a microservice cloud architecture, complete restructure of teams and roles, threw out a suite of 10’s of thousands of tests and started over, went from almost 0 telemetry, to 8+TB/day and figuring out to do anything meaningful with all that data. Many mistakes were made along the way, and lessons learned that I’ll be sharing.

You will learn:

  • The challenges of moving from a waterfall process to an agile one
  • The most common DevOps practices
  • How to scale teams in large numbers
