Dealing with Application Lifecycle Management in Microsoft Office 365 App Development
For teams doing cloud-friendly SharePoint or Office 365 development, apps will be a key area of focus - be they SharePoint add-ins or the newer Office 365/Azure AD apps. ASP.NET (typically MVC) is a common platform here, and fortunately ALM and Continuous Integration become MUCH easier - finally, an end to "it’s harder because it's SharePoint!" We'll demonstrate how Visual Studio Online and Azure Web Apps are a winning combination for “continuous deployment”, and also how features such as "Deployment Slots" in Azure can help with dev and test environments, and also the upgrade/push-to-live process. Several demos will ensure you’re covered for developing both SharePoint add-ins and Office 365 apps.
