A Practical View of Release Management for Your DevOps Mindset

Sign in to queue

Description

This session demos using Desired State Configuration (DSC) with Release Management for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 to tackle real-world deployment challenges. We start by presenting an overview of the key concepts, architecture, and configuration of the various components. We discuss the out-of-the box deployment actions available to compose automations for common deployment scenarios and how to use extensibility to cover the not-so-common scenarios. In more detail, we discuss adding custom DSC resources, how to trigger release as part of a build and how to leverage logs to diagnose failed releases. These are presented through specific scenarios encountered in the field.

    @Donovan Amazing demo @ ignite.
    You mentioned "Everyone - group, has to be removed". I could not get a hold of you to ask this question while I was there.
    I am the admin, the "Delete" and "Deactivate" buttons for this default group are disabled. How do I get it out of RM 2013? I am using update 2.

    Thank you

    @gkBinary: I can see why you are confused.  I meant to delete it from all your release paths and release templates.  Here is a better explanation. http://bit.ly/LockDownRM
