Requirements to released and monitoring in 60 minutes

Anthony Borton


Many of our user group meetups have been focused on a specific feature, technology or product. In this month's meetup I've decided to try something a little different.

I want to show as much of a end to end demonstration as possible using Microsoft Visual Studio Online. I'll keep the application pretty simple (Read AddTwoNumbers.aspx) and will walk through the following:

  • creating a new project
  • entering the requirements
  • use the Agile planning tools
  • add the source to version control
  • write tests
  • create an automated build
  • setup a release
  • deploy to Azure
  • looking at the usage in Application Insights

Clearly I must be crazy to try this.. right?

As you can imagine, it will be a very high level look at everything given the time constraints but I am often surprised by how few people have ever seen "all the bits" working together.

BringAFriendThis month we'd also like to encourage our user group members to bring a friend/colleague along to let them find out about our friendly little group. Maybe the free breakfast might help persuade them to get up a little earlier :)


Catering this month is provided by ALM-Training and their newly released training courses on Build, Release Management, Application Insights and Scrum. Course dates now announced for Brisbane.
