After your application has gone through a build and has been tested by QA, the next step is to deploy it. This may be as simple as copying your build artifact to a web server. This could also mean publishing your build to multiple targets such a server cluster or a mobile application marketplace. 

In part 6 of our series, Abel and Jeremy show us how to get our application builds deployed using Azure DevOps. They discuss incorporating approvals, creating custom gates, and even how to deploy your build behind your company firewall

    Please don't pre-make things like different environments, the pipeline and the tasks in it. Instead make everything from scratch. The learning output of this series is unfortunately minimal due to most things have been pre-made.
