Two Visual Studio DevOps courses to choose from

DevOps Visual Studio blog 1

With the recent launch of our new Build and Release Management using TFS 2015 course, I thought it timely to offer clarity in terms of the relationship between two similar courses. Simply stated, the Build and Release Management using TFS 2015 2-day course is a subset of the 3-day DevOps using Visual Studio TFS 2015 course.

The rationale behind having a 2-day course is that it suits attendees wanting to focus just on the new Build and Release Management (vNext) parts of TFS 2015 and Visual Studio Team Services. As a 2-day course it takes you out of the office for less time and the cost is less than a 3-day course.

For people wanting a little more in the DevOps area, the 3-day course covers everything in the 2-day course and adds additional topics including PowerShell, DSC and Application Insights.

If you’re interested in attending either of these courses, we have them running in Australia, New Zealand and the United States. To find out more just AskShane.

Application Insights Training

Application Insights DashboardOver the past few months I have been very impressed with the Application Insights feature in Visual Studio Online. I was so impressed I have presented talks to three user groups in Australia all about the feature to share my enthusiasm with the local community.

To help people get started using this feature, I have made it part of the newest course I have developed and announced at the ALM Forum in Seattle this week.
