Microsoft recently hosted a DevOps Virtual Workshop where they provided a deep dive into topics covering how to manage, automate, and transform applications and workloads within Microsoft Azure. This was held as a half day, virtual event that was recorded so it can be viewed afterwords. The sessions from this event provide tons of information and demos on DevOps and ALM integration for Architects, Developers and IT Pros.
