Course Overview

In the AZ-400 Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions Microsoft Official instructor-led course, learn how to use source control, scale Git for an enterprise, implement and manage build infrastructure, implement continuous integration in an Azure DevOps pipeline, how to manage code quality and security principles, how to implement a container build strategy, design a release strategy, set up a release management workflow, implement an appropriate deployment pattern, design a dependency management strategy and manage security and compliance, how to implement infrastructure as code and configuration management, how to provision Azure infrastructure using common automation tools, and how to deploy an application infrastructure using various Azure services and deployment methodologies.

You will also learn how to integrate 3rd party deployment tools with Azure, such as Chef and Puppet to incorporate compliance and security into the release pipeline, recommend and design system feedback mechanisms, implement a process for routing system feedback to development teams, optimize feedback mechanisms, plan for transformation, select a project, and create team structures. Gain the skills to develop quality and security strategies. Planning for migrating and consolidating artifacts and source control will also be covered.
