DevOps Series No. 1 | Reducing release cycle with Visual Studio 2012

Reduce the time to release and simplify your Build-test -release process with Visual Studio! Visual Studio and its partners are now extending its scope to include the interactions between development and operations – releasing from dev to operations, monitoring and debugging live applications and bringing feedback from production back to the development floor. In this session, attendees will understand the components of the DevOps offering from Microsoft and partners to streamline even further the full lifecycle of applications.
