With one simple tweet, Buck Hodges of Microsoft gave us what we have all been waiting for: less eye strain. Microsoft pushed changes to Azure DevOps, late today which introduced themes to the portal. Now you can change to a black background which many people prefer.
As a recovering IT Pro, I have been spending more time in Azure DevOps doing deployments for customers and the white theme is, let’s face blinding. This is a great follow-on to the rebranding of VSTS to Azure DevOps and the new more functional UI. To apply the theme simply click your Avatar, and then Theme.
In an instant, you will now have a new theme and instant relief! It’s great to see Microsoft continue to update their online cloud apps and listen to customers.
After using this for the past hours, I can say that I’m totally sold on this theme! Here is a Release that I ran this evening using the config.

Blinding? Just turn down your brightness and contrast!
